Evita
The Show
The monumental, multi-award winning musical Evita comes to London's West End this summer after a highly anticipated return. With lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, watch the life of Argentinian icon Eva Perón, wife of Dictator Juan Perón, unfold as she rises from a disadvantaged upbringing to Argentina's most adored political figure. She used her platform of power in the late 1940s to fight for women's rights, striving to improve the lives of the poor and was subsequently labelled 'the spiritual leader of the nation'. Bill Kenwright Productions present an astounding adaptation of the well-loved show which stars Emma Hatton as Eva Perón. Hatton has previously performed in Dreamboats and Petticoats, We Will Rock You and played the lead role of Elphaba in Wicked. Starring alongside Hatton is Italian-born Gian Marco Schiaretti who plays Che Guevara, an Argentinian revolutionary who is said to represent the voice of the people and act as the narrator. Eva's husband Juan Perón is played by Kevin Stephen-Jones, who has previously appeared in Cats and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Lloyd Webber's infamous songs, including 'Don't Cry for me Argentina,' 'On This Night of a Thousand Stars' and 'Another Suitcase in Another Hall,' are as powerful and awe-inducing as ever. The show runs at London's Phoenix Theatre from July and is directed by Bob Tomson and Bill Kenwright, with set design by Matthew Wright and choreography by Bill Deamer. Make sure you do not miss this spectacular production of the timeless musical which comes to London on the 65th anniversary of Eva Peron's death. Eva Perón famously said her 'biggest fear in life was to be forgotten'. Bill Kenwright's Evita wholeheartedly celebrates her legacy and is truly unforgettable.

History of Evita
Before premiering at the West End in 1978, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita began life as a concept album which was released in 1976. The West End premiere starred Elaine Paige as Eva Perón, shooting the actress to stardom. Pop singer David Essex played Che and Joss Ackland was Juan Péron. A year later in 1979, the musical premiered in Broadway with Patti LuPone taking the lead role. Many different adaptations have been created since its premiere across the United Kingdom, America as well as Madrid and Rio de Janeiro. In 1996, Alan Parker directed a film adaptation starring music legend Madonna as Eva Perón and Antonio Banderas as Che. Evita's American tour is still ongoing, and Bill Kenwright's production has recently finished a nationwide tour before heading for London's West End.
