THE SHOW

High-flying, adored! The hit Broadway musical came to the Isle of Man in 2012. Depicting the infamous real-life story of Eva "Evita" Duarte de Peron, the wife of President Juan Peron, who rose from poverty to become the most famous Argentine woman in history. Her huge political influence and constant charity works earned her scorn and fear from the military and upper classes but adoration and love from the workers and descamisados. Evita's legendary life was displayed before your eyes as the most hated and most beloved woman in Argentina.

Eva  starts out life as a poor girl who goes on to become an actress and then become the wife of the president of Argentina, Juan Peron. The musical is a story of love and politics, showing all the battles and triumphs Evita has in her short, but amazing life. The show tells her rise to fame through the eyes of the people, using an omniscient narrator to chart her journey.

 

REVIEW

Featuring some of the most famous and inspiring stage music ever written, including the classic songs Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of A Thousand Stars, Oh What A Circus, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall, this Taylorian production matched Eva Peron’s overwhelming ambition – and for an amateur company to take on the notoriously difficult holy grail of musicals was impressive.

Evita is an ambitious undertaking - and a great show. - Isle of Man Today
