THE SCREENING ROOM: Patti LuPone, Elaine Paige, Lea Salonga and More Sing "Don't Cry for Me Argentina"
08 Mar 2012
With the imminent arrival of the Broadway revival of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita, which is scheduled to begin previews March 12 at the Marquis Theatre, we offer a look (and listen) to several versions of the musical's best-known song, "Don't Cry for Me Argentina."
"Grease" star Olivia Newton-John has performed the song in concert throughout her career; here she is singing the tune on "Midnight Special" in 1980.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
