by Ellen Dostal - Jul 31, 2015

by BWW News Desk - Jul 28, 2015

Just in!  BroadwayWorld brings you a first look at a new reimaged EVITA at Serenbe Playhouse. The Playhouse will make the leap from the brutal, humid streets of New Orleans to the lush and rebellious countryside of Argentina with their audacious retelling of the country of Argentina's most infamous political figure. Since the bulk of the play is set in the rural countryside of Argentina, the play will be brought to life in the fresh rolling hills of Serenbe. There, Serenbe Playhouse's beloved Randi Garza will make the famed ascent of Eva. Eventually, at her side in her famed balcony will be world-renowned Argentinian tango and opera singer Cesar Restrepo as Juan Peron. Steaming things up in the background with his talk of revolution will be Broadway's Charlie Brady as Che Guevera. Check out a first look below! (more...)
