Extended by Popular Demand ! Evita is the story of Eva Perón, the wife of the Argentine dictator, Juan Peron. Two gifted sopranos take turns as Eva: Ana Laura Nicolicchia of Buenos Aires and Lauren Post of San Jose, CA. In some ways, Evita is a Cinderella story turned on its head - the little girl from Los Toldos, a dirty, poor village far from Buenos Aires. The difference is that this Cinderella isn't a pure, good girl winning her prince almost by chance, but a cunning, sly woman driven to achieve fame and power by any means and vowing to plow under anyone who would try to get in her way. With wonderful stirring music from the master, Andrew Lloyd Webber, this musical will have you wondering about whether you got your history correct, while you sing Webber's music all the way home. Directed by: John DeGaetano. A Raven Players Production. New Show dates: Jul 19, 20, 21 (matinee).
