Don’t cry for me Argentina
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s seven-time Tony Award-winning musical Evita charts the rags-to-riches rise of the First Lady of Argentina, who won the love of her countrymen after marrying military leader-turned-president Juan Peron. Set in the bustling Buenos Aires between 1934-1952, the musical follows Eva Duarte Peron on her passionate and tragic journey from her humble beginnings as a fatherless child to an ambitious actress … she then went on to become the most powerful woman in Latin America, before turning into a saint-like figure after her death. This is one we guarantee you should not miss out on! Tickets from R150. 14 October – 26 November. The Teatro, Montecasino. Details: www.computicket.co.za
