The Studio Tenn Theatre Company production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Evita plays the Tennessee Performing Arts Center September 9-18.

Eden Espinosa, who has been seen on Broadway in Brooklyn and Wicked, stars in the title role with Ben Crawford as Che.

The two artists are joined by Kiss of the Spider Woman Tony winner Anthony Crivello as Juan Peron; René Millán (The Wild Party) as Magaldi; and award-winning Nashville folk and Americana singer Mia Rose Lynne as The Mistress.

Matt Logan, artistic director of Studio Tenn, directs with choreography by Emily Speck.

Evita, which premiered as a two-LP recording starring Julie Covington (Eva) and Colm Wilkinson (Che), features a score by Lloyd Webber (music) and Rice (lyrics). Hal Prince staged both the original London and New York productions of the musical, which made stars of Elaine Paige (in London) and Mandy Patinkin and Patti LuPone (on Broadway). The score features such tunes as “Don't Cry for Me Argentina,” “Buenos Aires,” “A New Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall,” “I'd Be Surprisingly Good for You” and “Rainbow High.” Madonna, Antonio Banderas and Jonathan Pryce starred in the film version. The Broadway revival co-starred Elena Roger, Ricky Martin and Michael Cerveris.
