Producers Hal Luftig and Scott Sanders announced May 15 that the Tony Award-nominated revival of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita will launch a first national tour in fall 2013 at Providence Performing Arts Center in Providence, RI.
Casting and additional information will be announced at a later date.
Directed by Tony and Olivier Award winner Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony Award winner Rob Ashford, this is the first new Broadway production of the seven-time, Tony Award-winning musical since it debuted on Broadway over 30 years ago.
"Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady," according to press notes. "She won international acclaim and adoration from her own people as a champion of the poor, while glamour, power and greed made her the world’s first major political celebrity."
