Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's EVITA returns to London's West End for a strictly limited season. Opening on Tuesday 16 September at the recently refurbished Dominion Theatre, the musical considered by many to be Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's masterwork will play for 55 performances only in the West End, with musical theatre and pop icon Marti Pellow playing Che, Ben Forster playing Augustin Magaldi, and newcomer Madalena Alberto in the title role. Press Night is set for Monday 22 September at 7pm.

With more than 20 major awards to its credit, and the Oscar winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, EVITA has become iconic. It features some of the most memorable and best loved songs in musical theatre, including 'Don't Cry For Me Argentina', 'On This Night of a Thousand Stars', 'You Must Love Me', and 'Another Suitcase in Another Hall'.
EVITA charts the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, from her humble beginnings through to the extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the 'spiritual leader of the nation'.
