A Compelling Story of the Rise from Poverty to Power on Stage in Drayton Entertainment's EVITA

EVITA begins with the story of the celebrated icon being mourned by her devoted followers with one exception, the character Che, who wants to set the record straight on Eva Perón's life. Che is much more cynical about the way she went from an impoverished girl to the revered political leader EVITA. He decides to tell his version of what happened alongside the memories from Eva's point of view.  Sometimes their versions aligned and other times they clashed throughout this stage production.

What sets EVITA apart as a celebrated musical is not only its compelling storyline but also its rich and emotive score. Each note, each lyric, resonates with the passion and fervor of the characters, immersing the audience in a world where emotions run high and dreams clash with reality. The iconic anthem “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” is a haunting ballad that captures Eva’s vulnerability and strength among the other musical compositions that elevate the narrative of Eva Perón's journey. From the somber tone of a funeral to the rousing "Rainbow Tour", EVITA will leave a stamp on your heart and mind.

To the poor masses, she is adored as a saint; to her enemies, she is reviled as a manipulative dictator. Nevertheless, for over thirty years this legendary woman becomes the driving spirit that helps define a nation.

Featuring some of the best loved songs in musical theatre including “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”, “Buenos Aires”, “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”, and “High Flying, Adored”, Evita is a powerful and riveting theatrical experience not to be missed.
