Che Guevara

Christopher Hammel: Che by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice used Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara to provide Brechtian commentary on their tale of the political rise of Eva Peron. Tony Award-winning In the Heights writer Miranda would bring solid melody, beats and passion to a musical about the Argentine native who was a major figure in the Cuban Revolution. "Oh what an idea, oh what a show!"
