EVITA Is Heading to the KEITH ALBEE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER as Part of the MARSHALL ARTIST SERIES
The Marshall Artist Series is getting ready to unleash their 2019 season and first on the list of great productions and entertaining events is Broadway's Tony award winning musical, Evita at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center on January 28th, 2019!
Evita, scored by legendary Broadway composer Andrew Lloyd Webber along with lyrics and book by Time Rice, tells the story of Eva Duarte and her journey from a poor child to one of the most powerful women in Latin America.
"She's such a powerful female," explained Actress Yael Reich, who will be portraying Eva Peron in the upcoming production, in a press release. "Performing Eva is a challenge for any woman in the theater. She rose up from her situation and blazed a trail. That is so timely - such an iconic character."
The musical, which ran for nearly 1,500 performances on Broadway and was made into a feature film starring Madonna in 1996, features hit songs such as "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" and "Oh What A Circus."
Tickets can be purchased online through Ticketmaster and range from $64.42 to $98.42. You can also contact the Marshall Artist Series Box Office at (304) 696-6656 or visit their location at the Joan C. Edwards Playhouse on Marshall University's campus.
