Taylorian to tell tale of Eva
EVITA – Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s brilliant stage show – is coming to the Gaiety Theatre next month, courtesy of Taylorian Productions.
The spectacular musical recently reopened in New York on Broadway for the first time in more than a quarter of a century.
And it’s proving a classic which is still packing them in.
Fresh from a fast-moving 2011 with the record breaking Wizard of Oz and The Adventures of Dick Whittington, Taylorian’s 2012 choice of summer production has more than 20 major awards to its credit, including the Oscar-winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas.
Evita brings to life the dynamic, larger-than-life persona of Eva Peron, telling her passionate and tragic story through Rice and Lloyd-Webber’s dazzling and beloved score, including Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, Another Suitcase in Another Hall and High Flying Adored, together with You Must Love Me from the movie.
A tremendous piece of musical theatre, chances are the name Evita will conjure up for you an image of a charismatic woman, clad in a glittering white gown, singing ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’ from a balcony – even if you never had the opportunity to see the original, landmark stage production. It’s an iconic moment in musical theatre history, created for the 1978 London production before transferring the following year to Broadway, where it ran for nearly four years.
Evita – by special arrangement with the Really Useful Group and sponsored by Lloyds TSB – runs at the Gaiety from August 6 to 18.
The show runs daily at 7.30pm with matinees at 2.30pm on both Saturdays.
Tickets, costing £20, are available on 600555, from the Welcome Centre and Villa Marina or online at www.villagaiety.com
