Photo Coverage: Inside Friends and Family Day at Engeman Theater's EVITA!
The John W. Engeman Theater presents EVITA, one of the most passionate and colorful musicals in theater history. Performances run through November 2nd. BroadwayWorld brings you photos from inside Friends and Family Day below!
For decades, theater-lovers have thrilled to the story of EVITA, which recounts Eva Peron's meteoric rise from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world--while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. EVITA tells Eva's passionate and unforgettable true story and features some of theater's most beautiful songs, including "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall," And "High Flying, Adored."
The cast of EVITA features: JANINE DIVITA (Eva) - Broadway: GREASE, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD, ANYTHING GOES; AARON C. FINLEY (Che) - Broadway: ROCK OF AGES; BRUCE WINANT (Peron) - Broadway: LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, CHICAGO, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, RAGTIME, MISS SAIGON, MY FAVORITE YEAR; RUBEN FLORES (Migaldi) - Broadway: IN THE HEIGHTS; ASHLEY PEREZ FLANAGAN (The Mistress) started at The Engeman Theater as a hostess when she was in high school and went on to perform on stage in The Engeman production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC in 2010. She has since gone on to a successful career as a performer being featured in Diane Paulus's production of PROMETHEUS UNBOUND (A.R.T.) and ONCE ON THIS ISLAND (Enlightened Theatrics). Ashley is the daughter of NYS Senator John Flanagan.
