Directed by Sammi Cannold, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's rock-opera musical follows the controversial ascent of Argentina's renowned first lady. The production will star two actors in the title role.

Through a bold new vision, Cannold will utilize visual storytelling to explore new depths within the text and provide a unique perspective on Eva's troubled adolescence as it lurks behind her dazzling adult triumphs.

And after completing an international casting search as well as extensive research throughout Argentina, I'm especially excited to highlight new dimensions of Eva Perón's extraordinary story in this production."

Great comedy is often the byproduct of political scandal and those who humorously comment on the news often overshadow the newsmakers themselves.  You might say that more Americans learned about the controversies of Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon from watching The Smothers Brothers and Mort Saul, rather than Walter Cronkite.  For over forty years our perceptions of world leaders have been defined more by the impersonations seen on Saturday Night Live than by actual news clips.  And today there are a multitude of television hosts combining comedy with deep analysis and investigative journalism to editorialize on the goings-on of the current administration.
