The seventeen time award winning musical, Evita, is back for another round on broadway at Marquis Theater. Opening in April of 2012 with now 216 shows to go, the Evita revival has received mixed reviews. Evita is known for its ambitious and talented cast, and this year it is filled with new faces. Director Michael Grandage introduces Ricky Martin as Che, Michael Cerveris as Peron, and Evita as the sensational Elena Roger.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, developed Evita based off the storyline of Mary Main’s biography, “Evita: The Woman with the Whip.” The story focusses on the life of Eva Peron, a girl growing up in poverty who becomes an actress, shortly after taking the role as second wife of Argentine president, Juan Peron. Evita lives a short, but triumphant life as she becomes a political influence in Argentina, and accomplishes admirable charity work. The story and lyrics follow Evita’s rise to power, and eventual death.

Evita 2006 London Production

The 2006 West End Revival was a hit; Elena Roger who played Evita blew the audience away. She was said to have played the perfect glamorous yet political representation of the Argentine idol. Co-Stars, Matt Rawle and Philip Quast who played Che and Peron, were said to be ideal fits for the characters. The show was nominated for 4 out of 5 Laurence Olivier awards but only won “Outstanding Musical Production.”

Evita 2012 Broadway Revival

It is difficult to define where this revival stands in show business. Throughout Evita’s performance history, this years show received countless mixed reviews, as well as returning lead role Elena Rogers. Evita is considered to be a formidable piece of theater, so did first lady Elena Roger and pop-star Ricky Martin exhibit that feel of power in their performances?
Ms. LuPone (former Evita) wrote: “Evita had to have a wink in her eye, or the audience would not be able to come to her, or me playing her. NYTimes appeared to agree; “There’s little variety or seductiveness in Ms. Roger’s singing voice, which is sharp and nasal, especially in the upper registers of the vocally punishing part.”

As for Ricky Martin’s performance, Peter Marks from the Washington Post wrote: “Ricky Martin does a pretty good job of playing Ricky Martin throughout the plodding pageantry of ‘Evita’…. The dashing pop star flashes dazzling smiles as he serenades us in troubadour style. But as Che, the angry spokesman of the Argentine masses, the charm feels utterly misapplied.”
