Evita description

When Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber created their legendary musical about Eva Peron, the beautiful wife of the Argentinian dictator Juan Peron, they had no idea it would prove such a hit. Now it's playing a strictly limited 12 week run at the Phoenix Theatre this summer, following on the heels of Gary Barlow’s wonderful The Girls.

The remarkable Emma Hatton stars as Peron herself, who tragically died at age 33 of cancer. The Argentinian people were thrown into an orgy of grief at her passing and three million of them attended her Buenos Aires funeral. Hatton is no stranger to the role, having already played Peron on tour in early 2017. You might recognise her from her role in Wicked, as well as We Will Rock You and Dreamboats and Petticoats.

It's all down to Bill Kenwright, who has organised the season in celebration of the 65th anniversary of Peron's untimely demise. As you can imagine, Argentina will also be celebrating her memory. The show reveals Eva's true story, showcasing the incredible journey that led her from very humble beginnings to her role as the beloved spiritual leader of Argentina. It tells her story through some of Rice and Lloyd Webbers' best-loved tunes including the epic 'Don't cry for me Argentina', a massive chart hit for Julie Covington back in 1977 and again for Madonna in 1996, who sang the tune in the Academy Award winning movie Evita, also starring Antonio Banderas.

This is a multi-award winner of a musical, and the many accolades it has gathered are well deserved. It has won more than 20 awards including a Tony for Best Musical. Wherever you happen to be in the world, it's probably playing somewhere near you, in some theatre or other. It scored a huge hit at the Dominion theatre in 2014, now it's back in theatreland again.

Evita is recommended for people aged ten or older, and plays at the Phoenix Theatre from 2nd August to 14th October 2017. Don't miss it!

Innovative and intense

New explosive take on what is now a classic. The open air setting is perfect for a summer night out. The choreography and its execution was stunning. The cast gave everything they had.

inspired!

Having seen and much enjoyed 'Evita' in its original manifestation, this time I found it even better than I'd expected. It's such a marvellous story, yet realistically presented - Eva Perón is by no means portrayed as a saint (the inspired character Che sees to that!), yet one can both see how she came to be regarded in a saintly light by the poor and the outcast whose cause she so passionately espoused, and at the same time love her for her faults and weaknesses as much as for her virtues and strengths. Dipping into Wikipedia's long article on the life of the real Eva Perón suggests Lloyd Weber's and Tim Rice's work to be admirably true to historical fact, and inspires one to read the published biographies on whose material Wiki draws. I strongly recommend seeing it, and hope its run will be extended - I for one would go again!

Evita again

Having seen this a few times over the years my wife and I were just glad to be out in London and what a great surprise it was. The performance captivated us right from the start, it was a strong opening, we loved it all the way through. We were playing the music the next day when walking through Regents Park. Really nice theatre and loved the whole experience.

tango time

the show was brilliant but the seating was a little unusual. I was sat right behind the person in front who was about six foot two. Usually the seats are staggered so that you look between the shoulders of the people in front not the back of someones head?

Thumbs up for Evita but thumbs down for Marti!

Good show overall with excellent performances apart from Mart Pellow's singing which was not on a par with the rest of the cast!

Intense Evita

Evita is a very intense and gripping musical. The singing was fantastic and it was a very professional musical. Unless you know the story it might be hard to follow. We had good seats with no restrictions on the view. Limited showing, so those who like 'serious' musicals it is a must see.

Deafened by screaming

The first half volume of the music was so loud it distorted the singing. The delay to the second half due to safety curtain failure did not help the show

It could have been better

If I am honest, I have to say that Evita was too old and Marti Pellow was not right for the Che character. Senior Magalde was fab and the sets were great. That’s my summary! Need some oil for the safety curtain mechanism!

EVITA is back and should be better than last time!

by Phil Willmott | Thursday, July 13 2017, 08:34

Evita Producer Bill Kenwright’s rather elegant production of the classic Tim Rice, Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Evita is headed black to the West End and it's going to be much better than the last time.

How can I be so sure? Well there are two very good reasons. The first is that the most recent revival was at the cavernous Dominion Theatre, a huge place the saps most shows of any personality - although not the current show An American in Paris, which is an absolute delight from beginning to end and which you should definitely try and catch.

EVITA is back and should be better than last time!
