Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate 15-year-old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president’s mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Perón was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score with a live orchestra that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.

Florence Foster Jenkins was a wealthy society eccentric who mistakenly believed she was a great coloratura soprano when in fact she could not carry a tune. Nevertheless, she amassed extraordinary fame and the climax of her career was a single concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944.
