This bold new staging of "Evita" on the one-hundredth anniversary of Eva Perón’s birth features two actresses as Eva Peron--Solea Pfeiffer ("Almost Famous," "Hamilton") and Argentine actor and recording artist Maia Reficco as Young Eva. It still includes all the Andrew Lloyd Webber songs you love from the original, including “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina.”
What are we seeing and when?
"Evita" at New York City Center (131 W 55th Street) Friday, November 15, 2019 at 8:00 PM, Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 8:00 PM, Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at 7:30 PM, and Sunday, November 24, 2019 at 2:00 PM.
What's The Story?
Solea Pfeiffer ("Almost Famous," "Hamilton"), who first blew the roof off City Center in "Songs for a New World" from the 2018 Encores! Off-Center Season, plays Eva as she emerges as a populist hero ensconced within the elite circles of Buenos Aires society. In iconic ballads like “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” and “You Must Love Me,” Pfeiffer reveals the savvy artistry with which the eventual celebrity rose from her humble origins. Cannold’s bold new vision also casts Argentine actor and recording artist Maia Reficco to open the show as Young Eva, and the shadow presence of her troubled adolescence provides a unique perspective on Eva’s dazzling adult triumphs. They are joined by Jason Gotay ("Call Me Madam" at City Center) as Che, Enrique Acevedo ("Zorba!" at City Center) as Juan Perón, and Philip Hernandez ("Les Misérables") as Magaldi. On the one-hundredth anniversary of Eva Perón’s birth, this presentation deepens your understanding of one of Argentina’s most adored and reviled figures.
