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).
