PHOTO CALL: The Cast of Evita Visits Eva Peron Exhibit at New York's Consulate General of Argentina

News   PHOTO CALL: The Cast of Evita Visits Eva Peron Exhibit at New York's Consulate General of Argentina The cast of Broadway's Evita visited a special exhibition of Evita's dresses, shoes and other personal items, along with art and other material celebrating her work at New York's Consulate General of Argentina on 56th Street.

Entitled "Evita: Passion and Action," the exhibit is 10 blocks from the Broadway revival of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical play Evita.

Museo Evita curator Gabriel Miremont told Playbill.com, "With this exhibit, we are doing two things. One is to show how her thoughts and actions defined the woman that is Evita, and also how these set into motion a desire to help others. By being in New York with these materials, the Museo Evita also helps to tell the story, the reality, behind the musical tribute to Eva Peron."

Here's a look at the cast at the exhibit:

"Evita: Passion and Action" will be on view Sept. 7-28, Mondays to Fridays from 10 AM-5 PM (closed Saturdays & Sundays, except Sept. 22 & 23, 9:30 AM-5 PM) at the Consulate General of Argentina, 12 W. 56th Street (between Fifth & Sixth Avenues).
