Evita, the international award-winning, blockbuster musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber will tour the UK in early 2017. This tour of Evita is being produced by Bill Kenwright.
Evita tells the story of Eva Peron, wife of Argentinian dictator Juan Peron. Rising from the working class, Eva achieved extraordinary wealth and power, with many seeing her as the spiritual leader of the nation. In death she achieved iconic status which remains today.
Made into a film featuring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, Evita features musical numbers including Don't Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night Of A Thousand Stars, Oh What A Circus! and Another Suitcase In Another Hall and the Academy Award-winning You Must Love Me.
Eva Peron will be played by Emma Hatton who is fresh from playing Elphaba in the West End production of Wicked, whilst Che will be played by Gian Marco Schiaretti, who played the title role in Disney's Tarzan. Kevin Stephen-Jones will play Peron, with Oscar Balmaseda playing Magaldi and Sarah O'Connor playing the Mistress.
This tour of Evita is being directed by Bob Tomson and Bill Kenwright with choreography by Bill Deamer, and design by Matthew Wright.
