Eva Peron’s ambition and charisma made her a starlet at 22, the President’s mistress at 24, First Lady Eva at 27 and dead at 33.  Saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military, she left a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world. Eva’s unforgettable story is told in one of the most celebrated musicals of all time. With more than 20 major awards to its credit, EVITA features a Latin rock/jazz/pop score with some of the most beloved songs in musical theatre history, including “On this Night of a Thousand Stars,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall” and “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.”
