Following a sell-out season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, this turbocharged show lights up the Barbican over summer: 'a terrific, radical revival - expressive and explosive' (Evening Standard)
From a life of poverty to spiritual leader of the nation, Eva Perón was loved, hated, derided and venerated. Dividing the Argentinian people with her patriotic speeches, her ambition, glamour and magnetism transformed her into one of the world’s first major political celebrities.
Jamie Lloyd reinvents Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical, its chart-topping score including ‘Don’t Cry for Me Argentina’, ‘Oh What A Circus’, ‘Another Suitcase in Another Hall’ and ‘You Must Love Me’ – the winner of an Oscar for Best Original Song. The production was recently nominated in the Olivier Awards 2020 Best Musical Revival category and won the 2019 Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Musical. Jamie Lloyd received a nomination for Best Direction for Evita in the WhatsOnStage Awards.
