Bill Kenwright’s hugely successful national tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classic musical Evita makes a highly anticipated return to the West End.
Playing a strictly limited 12 week season at London’s Phoenix Theatre, the season marks the 65th anniversary of the death of Eva Perón, set to be commemorated in Argentina this summer.
Evita is Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s incredible musical that follows the true story of Eva, the wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Perón. Documenting the journey that led her from humble beginnings to becoming the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’, the show includes a rousing score that contains some of the musical duo’s biggest numbers.
A multi-award winning musical, Evita has picked up over 20 international awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical and continues to play across the world, with the last London revival occurring in 2014 at the Dominion Theatre. In 1996, the story was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film starring music legend Madonna and Antonio Banderas.
Led by West End’s leading lady Emma Hatton, Evita plays at the Phoenix Theatre for a limited summer season beginning in July 2017.
With show-stopping songs including “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”, “You Must Love Me” and “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina”, prepare to witness one of musical theatre’s biggest shows.
