 The Story of Eva Peron's journey. 

EVITA
Telling the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, EVITA follows Eva’s journey from humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately lead her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people. With more than 20 major awards to its credit, including the Oscar winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, EVITA features some of the most iconic songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall.
 
Marti Pellow plays Che, a character who reflects the voice of the Argentine people, linked to Eva by destiny he brings conflict to the story of Eva’s rise to fame. As a solo-singer, recording artist, and at the beginning of his career with Wet Wet Wet, Marti Pellow has enjoyed virtually un-rivalled chart success, with over 25 hits and three of the UK’s biggest number one singles, including the seminal Love Is All Around. He has performed all over the world, and his West End and Musical Theatre appearances include The Witches of Eastwick, Chess, Jekyll & Hyde, Chicago and Blood Brothers.

Reviews

Madalena Alberto is an extraordinary talent. The best live performance I have ever seen! I was in tears.
Sarah \\ 17/04/2014
an amazing performance by the entire cast, taking the audience on an emotional rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. the performance by Eva and Che was outstanding and more than worthy of the standing ovation it received. A show definitely not to miss
Sharon Booth \\ 16/04/2014
Wonderful show, everyoone on their feet for a standing ovation said it all. Slight hold up at the begining due to an electrical fault but soon fixed and this magical production got underway. Superb cast and Eva has a voice to die for. As ever a fantastic production, thankyou.
