Evita at Arts Center of Coastal Carolina

May 2nd to May 27th

Show Times: 8 pm Tuesdays-Saturdays; check calendar for Sunday show times!

Description: Our audience’s number one pick for a musical, Evita became the first British musical to receive the Tony Award for Best Musical. With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, the show also garnered six Drama Desk awards, the Outer Critics Circle award, and seven Tony awards. Evita focuses on the life of Argentine political leader Eva Peron, the ruthlessly ambitious second wife of Argentine president Juan Peron, and follows her early life, rise to power, charity work and eventual death. The show wows with show-stopping numbers including “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina,” “And the Money Kept Rolling In (and Out),” “The Rainbow Tour,” and “High-flying, Adored.” The eclectic range of musical styles includes classical, with its opening choral piece (“Requiem for Evita”), instrumentals, rhythmic Latinate, as well as ballads and rock. The Sunday Times described Lloyd Webber’s score as “an unparalleled fusion of 20th century musical experience.”

“Spectacular, innovative and starry.” -Village Voice
