EVITA opens March 4 at The Barn!
Argentina's controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic
musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped
her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven
by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-
two, the president's mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-
seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron "saint to the working-
class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military" was
destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th
century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales
with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an
arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.
Reservations available now at our website.
