Circle Theatre to Present EVITA, 5/7-23Circle Theatre to Present EVITA, 5/7-23
by BWW News Desk - Apr 22, 2015

Starting off the Main Stage season in May of 2015 is the musical EVITA, running May 7 through 23. The subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice is Argentina's controversial First Lady, Eva Peron. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president's mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron 'saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military' was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself. (more...)

When Bayou City Theatrics announced this show my excitement ranneth over and I was ready to head to the theatre to see what the creatives had for the American Stage. (more...)

The film also features the voices of Richard White, Jerry Orbach, David Ogden Stiers, and Angela Lansbury, who occupy supporting roles. The film was a box office success, and has since garnered over $424 million worldwide.
