Evita returns to West End for Dominion opening

Marti Pellow is taking Evita back into the West End for a limited season at the newly refurbished Dominion Theatre.

The Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber musical will open on 16 September.

The show, considered by many to be the duo’s master-work, will play for 55 performances only in the West End.

Musical theatre and pop icon Marti Pellow resumes the part of Che, a role that has won him widespread acclaim during its national tour, and extraordinarily talented newcomer Madalena Alberto is Eva Peron.

With more than 20 major awards to its credit, and the Oscar winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, Evita has become iconic.

It features some of the most memorable and 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.

Evita charts the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, from her humble beginnings through to the extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’.
