Why See Evita?

The iconic musical comes to Toronto

Playing at the Lyric Theatre for a limited time only this month, the iconic musical that started life in 1976 as a concept album will ignite your passionate side! Soon after, the production debuted on stage in London's West End starring Elaine Paige as the polarizing Argentine first lady Eva Peron and was directed by Hal Prince. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's iconic score features the Broadway classic 'Don't Cry For me Argentina'.

Evita lead a whirlwind life. Hailed as the "Saint of the Working Class" in Argentinian history, she cut a controversial figure after pulling herself out from under the crippling weight of poverty, marrying president Juan Peron in 1945. She came out from under her husband's shadow as a woman of the people, running for the Vice Presidential candidacy, however tragedy struck and she had to pull out when cancer took its toll.
