Don’t cry for this masterfully re-imagined version of Evita brought to us by Broadway in Miami and presented by Bank of America and the Florida Theatrical Association at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. This beautiful classic revived by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice tells the story of the rise and fall of Eva Peron, the Argentinian political leader and second wife of President Juan Peron. Eva Peron rose from the purlieus of Argentina to become one of the most powerful women in the world, only to succumb to her own health. The production focuses on her life, rise to fame and power, charitable work, and her subsequent death.
Evita casts Caroline Bowman as Eva, Josh Young as Che, and Sean MacLaughlin as Juan Peron in the main roles. The three of them together steal the show with their boisterous and energetic voices as they sing and dance to the play’s hit songs like “Buenos Aires,” “High Flying Adorned,” and “Don’t Cry for me Argentina.” The gorgeous set design by Christopher Oram impeccably sets the tone and era of the 1950s which is complemented by the visually striking lighting by Neil Austin. The dazzling transitions flawlessly guide the audience through the scenes of this epic Tony-nominated revival.
Directed by Michael Grandage, Evita at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County brings a spectacular star-quality production that is inspiring the City of Miami as Evita once did Argentina! CBS This Morning says this is “the Show Broadway has been Waiting for!” NO! This is the show South Florida has been waiting for!
