Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre is proud to kick off its milestone 30th Anniversary Season with Evita, one of the most passionate and powerful musicals in theater history.
Winner of seven Tony Awards, Evita brings to life the dynamic, larger-than-life persona of Eva Perón, wife of former Argentine President Juan Perón. Blessed with charisma, Eva Perón captivated a nation by championing the working class. This exuberant production creates a gripping theatrical experience and features Andrew Lloyd Webber’s compelling Latin, pop and jazz influenced score. One of the most popular collaborations between Webber and Tim Rice, this legendary musical features some of theater’s most beautiful songs, including “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall,” and “High Flying, Adored,” among many others.
“Actors’ Playhouse is thrilled to reprise Evita, one of the most significant productions in our 30-year history, in both English (Nov 1-26) and Spanish (Nov 30 – Dec 17),” said Actors’ Playhouse Artistic Director David Arisco.
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Evita charts the rags-to-riches rise of the First Lady of Argentina, Eva Duarte Perón. It follows her journey from fatherless child, to ambitious actress, to the most powerful woman in Latin America and eventually, to a saint-like figure after her death from cancer at age 33.
The Miracle Theatre is located at 280 Miracle Mile. Showtimes are Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 8pm, plus Sunday at 3pm. Call 305-444-9293. http://www.actorsplayhouse.org
