10 lucky readers and their partners will watch EVITA live on 20 October at Monte Casino.
The original West End and Broadway production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical EVITA (presented by Pieter Toerien & David Ian and directed by legendary Broadway director HAL PRINCE)
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s seven-time Tony Award-winning musical Evita charts the rags-to-riches rise of the First Lady of Argentina who won the love of her countrymen after marrying military leader-turned-president, Juan Perón. Set in Buenos Aires between 1934 and 1952, the musical follows Eva Duarte Perón on her passionate and tragic journey from her humble beginnings as a fatherless child to ambitious actress to the most powerful woman in Latin America and, eventually, to a saint-like figure after her death from cancer at 33.
EVITA will star South Africa’s own Jonathan Roxmouth (Grease, Beauty and the Beast, Phantom of the Opera, Sunset Boulevard, Sweeney Todd) as
Che Guevara, and Emma Kingston (In the Heights, Les Misérables ) – who was personally picked by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice and Hal Prince to play Eva Perón. Robert Finlayson will make a welcome return to the stage as Juan Perón. The show will be choreographed by Larry Fuller, who choreographed the original West End and Broadway productions, and will be designed by original designer Timothy O’Brien.
The winners will watch the show on Friday, 20 October 2017 at 8pm.
