About the show

The Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical about the life of Argentine political leader Eva Perón. More…

Presented by The Gallery Players in Park Slope, Brooklyn, Evita charts the rags-to-riches rise of the First Lady of Argentina, who won the love of her countrymen after marrying military leader-turned-president Juan Perón. Set in Buenos Aires, the musical follows Eva Duarte Perón on her journey from fatherless child to ambitious actress to the most powerful woman in Latin America—and, eventually, to a saint-like figure after her death from cancer at age 33.
