Breakdown

With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, this rock opera explores the role of women in politics, the power of populism and the romantic rags-to-riches story of Evita’s life and charity work. Playful storytelling tempers the serious subject matter, turning this classic show into a celebration of one politician’s ability to connect with people and the issues that mattered most. This dynamic rethinking of Evita will feature a cast of 10 with a live band.
