BWW Review: 'A New Argentina' Has Risen with Cape Rep's EVITABWW Review: 'A New Argentina' Has Risen with Cape Rep's EVITA
by Kristen Morale - Aug 17, 2015

When Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice came together to write Evita, they probably didn't realize how big a splash they would be making the realm of musical theater; with its dynamic and rather challenging score, its continuous demand for the sung word (trademark of many Lloyd Webber pieces) and a plot with little to be played with in keeping with its historical basis, Evita is quite the undertaking for any theater group that chooses to accept the challenge of presenting this on stage. In this sense, it also has the great potential of surprising an audience with how beautiful it is when done in a certain way, and this element is what Cape Rep Theatre has managed to make possible and thus present to a Cape Cod audience with its current production of the Webber/Rice musical. "A New Argentina" has indeed risen with this stellar production of Evita, already boasting many sold-out performances with people flocking to bear witness to the story Argentinian First Lady Eva Peron and her epic rise to power.
