Good staging for encores, Entertaining, Great music, Great singing

See it if Great music. Mostly great singers especially Evita & Che. Sets were nice for an Encores show.

Don't see it if It's an Encores production, not full staging.

Great music, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy the score to Evita or have never seen it before. Cast is great with amazing vocals.

Don't see it if You don't like Evita or shows that are completely sung through.

"Pfeiffer's stunningly sung, perfectly enunciated and smartly acted portrayal of Argentina's former first lady in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's devilishly difficult work should effectively help the actress skip a rung or two (or three) on her recent ascent to musical theater superstardom."

Score: 80% "Sammi Cannold directs this new incisive production of Evita that takes a deeper and more introspective look at the woman behind the glamour, starring Solea Pfeiffer as Eva, and a sprightly Maia Reficco as her younger counterpart."

"Its core problem stops me from fully embracing its revival, even as I acknowledge that the singing in this production is gorgeous, the orchestra lush, the choreography fun, and the story reinterpreted in some bold and intriguing if not always effective ways."
