Argentina's controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. TheatreZone is delighted to announce that Andrea McArdle, Broadway’s original ANNIE, will play Eva Perone. As an illegitimate fifteen 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 Peron "saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military" was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score by Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice.
