Perennial favourite, Evita, is set for a new UK tour following the success of its return run at London’s Dominion Theatre.
Bill Kenwright’s production of the Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s award-winning musical is set to thrill audiences once again across the UK.
Telling the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, Evita follows Eva’s journey from humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately lead her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people.
Evita is iconic with more than 20 major awards to its credit and an Oscar winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas.
Featuring some of the best loved songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall, this spectacular production launches its 2017 tour at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley in January.
Casting to be announced.
