Lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
From a life of poverty to the First Lady of Argentina, Eva Peron was hailed as the spiritual leader of the nation. Seen as the champion of the poor, her ambition, glamour, and power made her the world’s first major political celebrity, winning the adoration of the people.
With a chart-topping score including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh What A Circus, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall - and having “redefined Jesus Christ Superstar for a whole new generation of theatregoers” (WhatsOnStage) - Regent's Park Open Air Theatre presents Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic musical, Evita.
Chicago-based Samantha Pauly makes her UK debut in the role of Eva Peron, alongside Ektor Rivera also making his UK debut as Juan Peron. Trent Saunders returns to the UK in the role of Che following his appearance as St. Jimmy in Green Day's American Idiot (Hammersmith Apollo). Nominated for an Olivier Award for her role as Kylah in Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, Frances Mayli McCann plays the role of The Mistress.
