Rachel Potter, who plays Perón's Mistress in the Broadway revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Evita, took the Playbill Flipcam backstage at the Marquis Theatre for a look at the behind-the-scenes action on Broadway.



In the first part of Playbill Video's three-part series, Potter visits co-stars Max von Essen, Elena Roger and Michael Cerveris before the curtain goes up at the Marquis. In part two, Potter checks in with the production's understudies. 

The production, directed by Tony and Olivier Award winner Michael Grandage, stars Grammy winner Ricky Martin (Les Miserables) as Che, Tony Award winner Cerveris (Assasins, Sweeney Todd) as Juan Perón, von Essen (Dance of the Vampires, Les Miserables, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Magaldi and Potter (The Addams Family) as the Mistress.
