After a successful Piccolo Spoleto run, Evita returns to the Charleston stage. Ambitious, charismatic, and controversial, Eva Peron escaped poverty for the glamor of Buenos Aires, becoming a starlet at 22, the Argentine president’s mistress at 24, First Lady at 27, and sadly dead by 33. Produced by Wandering Stars and with a score fusing Latin, pop, and jazz influences, Evita creates a portrait as vibrant as the woman herself.
