STAGE TUBE: Watch Highlights from Marriott Theatre's EVITA

EVITA, one of the most passionate and powerful rock operas in Broadway history, will be presented at The Marriott Theatre (10 Marriott Drive, Lincolnshire), previewing April 13, opening April 20 and running through June 5. The winner of seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical masterpiece with lyrics by Tim Rice will be directed and choreographed by Jeff Award-nominee Alex Sanchez(Choreography for On the Town and Mary Poppins at The Marriott Theatre; Follies at Chicago Shakespeare Theater) with musical direction by Ryan T. Nelson.

EVITA is the complex and haunting story of Argentina's controversial first lady Eva Perón. Armed with ambition and charisma, Eva would escape her dirt-poor childhood for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. A starlet at twenty-two, the president's mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three, Eva secured her position as an iconic figure in Latin culture and a leading spirit of Argentina.

Her fascinating life and legacy are explored in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's vibrant score, including "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina."
