Evita in Broadway EVITA
Benedum Center
EVITA tells Eva's passionate and tragic story through Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's most dazzling and beloved score, including "Don't Cry for Me Argentina", "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and "High Flying Adored," together with "You Must Love Me", the Oscar-winning hit from the film EVITA. After researching the life of Eva Peron for many years, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber released EVITA in 1976 as a concept album with Julie Covington as Eva and it became a world-wide hit. Soon after, the production debuted on stage in London's West End starring Elaine Paige and directed by Hal Prince. The production transferred to Broadway and opened in 1979 starring Patti LuPone, who went on to win one of the seven 1980 Tony Awards the show earned.

A Thousand Clowns in Broadway A THOUSAND CLOWNS
Montgomery Theater
This well-loved Broadway comedy produced one of theatre's most beloved roles: Unconventional Murray, uncle to pecocious nephew, Nick. Tired of writing cheap comedy gags for "Chipper the Chipmunk," a children's television star, Murray finds himself unemployed with plenty of free time with which to pursue his. . . pursuits. Lectured by his conventional brother Arnold and hounded by "the system" Murray's behavior eventually inspires a visit from bickering and uptight social workers Sandra and Albert. Their meeting leads Murray to solve their problems as well as most of his own.

Cactus in Broadway CACTUS
12 Peers Theater
A loose adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Cactus moves the events to the Arizona border. Two conflicting vampire families patrol the area; one working with the United States Government to kill illegal border crossers, the other protecting them. When Ron and Julie, two seemingly teenaged vampires from the opposing clans, fall in love, will it bring their families closer together, or farther apart? Cactus is a play about doing whatever it takes to protect the people you care about, and the dangers that can complicate that.
