Circle Theatre Begins New Season With Evita

Circle Theatre is starting off the Main Stage season this May, 2015 with the musical EVITA, running May 7 through 23. This dynamic musical masterpiece by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice is Argentina's is the controversial story of First Lady, Eva Peron. 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.
