JUNE 14 – JULY 2 | MAIN STAGE
The extraordinary musical about an extraordinary woman: this seven-time Tony Award winner captures the passion and unforgettable life story of Eva Perón, who rose from abject poverty in rural Argentina to become First Lady by the age of 27. With a dazzling score inspired by Latin, pop and jazz and filled with show-stopping numbers, including the riveting anthem “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina,” Evita captures the complexity of an illegitimate child who came to be “the spiritual leader of the nation” and one of history’s most tragic and dramatic figures. Directed by Associate Artistic Director Dennis Razze, who was lauded for PSF’s completely sold-out West Side Story last summer and Les Misérables in 2015, this production will be a “must see.” PG13
Similar to the last two seasons, PSF expects the majority of performances to sell out. Order early for the best seating options.
EVITA is presented through special arrangement with R&H Theatricals and Two Knights Limited. www.rnh.com
