We continue our Evita Files series with Loni Ackerman, who was the third actress to play the role of Eva Peron on Broadway. Ackerman's New York stint followed a record-breaking two-year run in the Los Angeles production of Evita. She went on to play Grizabella in another Lloyd Webber musical, the Tony-winning Cats. Read more about Loni Ackerman's career in the Playbill Vault.
The current Broadway revival features Olivier Award winner Elena Roger in her Broadway debut as Eva Perón, Grammy winner Ricky Martin as Che, Tony Award winner Michael Cerveris as Juan Perón, Max von Essen as Magaldi and Rachel Potter as the Mistress.
