“FORGET EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT EVITA: THIS ONE PROPERLY ROCKS” (Metro)
From a life of poverty to spiritual leader of the nation, Eva Perón was loved, hated, derided and venerated. Dividing the Argentinian people with her patriotic speeches, her ambition, glamour and magnetism established ‘Evita’ as the world’s first major political celebrity.
“A turbocharged, transformative revival” (Daily Mail), Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s sell-out production of Evita comes to the Barbican for 8 weeks only.
With a chart-topping score including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh What A Circus, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, and the Oscar-winning You Must Love Me, Jamie Lloyd directs Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic musical.
