Evita, the powerhouse musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, is based on the life of Argentine political leader Eva Perón, and follows her from her early life, to her rise to power, her charity work, and her death. It was the first British musical to win the Tony award for Best Musical.
“Arguably the best of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals…a ravishing spectacle…the sung-through narrative here maintains a rhythmic pulse.”
– David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
