Evita

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

The UH Hilo Performing Art Center’s Amateur Production of Evita

Lyrics by Tim Rice and Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Directed by Jackie Pualani Johnson
With Musical Director Armand Mendoza and Choreographer Celeste Staton

Argentina's controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen-year-old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president's mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron 'saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military' was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, Evita creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.
