Enchanting, Sweeping, Epic, Beautifully played, Absorbing

See it if ...you want to hear this classic score played by a giant orchestra and sung to its full potential, at least by post of the principals.

Don't see it if ...you need a captivating Eva, because Auli’i Cravalho definitely was not that (and was dreadfully miscast). Eva has to be sizzling. Read more

Must see, Great staging, Epic, Great singing, Great acting

See it if The music is epic. I couldn’t get the songs out of my head for weeks. I enjoyed this production of a classic but the interpretation

Don't see it if You want to see something that sticks to the original staging and casting. This has been brought into the 21st century

Incredible orchestra, Extremely talented cast, Beautiful, Entertaining, Enchanting

See it if You want to see a production that stays true to the original musical and has an extremely talented cast, creative time and orchestra.

Don't see it if A mostly white ensemble feels distasteful when there are so many talented Hispanic/Latino/ethnic minority actors who deserve representation. Read more

The London Evening Standard
August 9th, 2019
For a previous production

Smashing. That’s the word for this pared-down, muscular, expressive and explosive revival...In a slip dress and trainers, street chick Evita is beating heart of tango-tastic show.'

The Guardian (UK)
August 9th, 2019
For a previous production

Argentina's queen of hearts as a high-school mean girl...Andrew Lloyd Webber’s epic gets a rock-concert revival that features pom-poms and twerking but lacks central chemistry.'

The Telegraph (UK)
August 11th, 2019
For a previous production

A revelatory staging... Everything is playful, responsive to the gear-shifting nature of the score, which can go from rock to tango in 10 seconds, yet every skittish touch has the weight of an idea.'

The Times (UK)
August 10th, 2019
For a previous production

The music is immaculately played...In the end, if we never really get to know Evita, that is more the fault of a work that is more interested in creating arresting tableaux than three-dimensional drama.'

For a previous production

...radical staging at the Open Air Theatre strips away all the glamour and passion that characterised Hal Prince's original version...Over and over again, this is a production that surprises.'

The Arts Desk
August 9th, 2019
For a previous production

A diva dictator for 2019...The ensemble is an expressive force throughout...Both literal and figurative fireworks in Jamie Lloyd's innovative musical revival.'

The Stage (UK)

For a previous production

...the honey-voiced Samantha Pauly is an Evita for the social media age: very modern, thoroughly calculating and scarily precocious...Pauly gives a performance of considerable bravery...'

Time Out London
October 24th, 2019
For a previous production

Forget everything you know about ‘Evita’: this one properly rocks...Jamie Lloyd’s production wipes the gloss off Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical, creating a pumping, sped-up ‘Evita’ edged with dirt, rust and grime.'
