The production will be directed by Engeman veteran Igor Goldin and will run through Nov. 2 with an official opening Sept. 20 at 8 PM. Antoinette DiPietropolo will choreograph and James Olmstead will music direct.
Here's how the theater bills the production, "For decades, theater-lovers have thrilled to the story of Evita, which recounts Eva Peron’s meteoric rise from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world---while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. Evita tells Eva’s passionate and unforgettable true story and features some of theater’s most beautiful songs."
The cast includes Broadway regulars Janine Divita (Grease, Young Frankenstein) as Eva Peron, Aaron C. Finley (Rock of Ages) as Che, Bruce Winant (La Cage Aux Folles, Chicago) as Peron and Ruben Flores (In The Heights) as Migaldi. Ashley Perez will play The Mistress. The ensemble includes Justin Gregory Lopez, Ryan Rhue, Gilbert Sanchez, Larry Lozier Jr., Paul Velutis, Megan Koumis, Erika Peterson, Hallie Silverston and Emily Esposito.
The design team includes Daniel Willis (Scenic Design), Kurt Alger (Costume and Wig Design), Zach Blane (Lighting Design), Craig Kaufman (Sound Design) and Meagan Miller-McKeever (Props Design).
