Following a smash-hit season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, Jamie Lloyd‘s transformative revival of Evita comes to the Barbican for 8-weeks in summer 2020.
With more than 20 major awards to its credit, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s award winning musical features some of the most iconic songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall.
Evita will run from 27 June 2020 until 22 August 2020 at Barbican Theatre, London.
What’s the Story?
From a life of poverty she fought her way to become a political force as the First Lady of Argentina.
Seen as a champion of the poor, her ambition, glamour and power made her the world’s first major political celebrity, winning the adoration of the people and loathing by the ruling classes.
