Perhaps the crowning dramatic achievement of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, Evita won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Score. The show is among the most passionate and memorable works in musical theater history. Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise from her poverty-stricken roots on the outskirts of Buenos Aires to become the powerful and controversial first lady of Argentina at the age of 27. She won international acclaim and adoration as a champion of the poor while glamour, power, and greed made her the world's first major political celebrity. With an electrifying score inspired by jazz, pop, and Latin music, including the riveting anthem "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," this iconic musical is set to dazzle with a spectacular new staging at Asolo Rep.
The year is 1907. A decade after his disappearance from the Paris Opera House, The Phantom has escaped to a new life in New York City. There he lives among the joyrides and freak shows of Coney Island. In this electrically charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar, but he has never stopped yearning for his true love and musical protégée, Christine Daaé.
And what has become of Christine? Now one of the world's finest sopranos, she accepts an invitation to travel from Paris to N.Y.C. to perform at a renowned opera house. Her marriage to Raoul is suffering at the hands of his drinking and gambling, and they desperately need the financial rewards that the United States can give them.
Now The Phantom thinks he has another chance. In a final bid to win back Christine's love, he lures her, Raoul, and their young son, Gustave, from Manhattan to the glittering world of Coney Island.
It's the dawn of the 20th century in New York...a time of enormous change and new ideas, and the world is moving to the music of ragtime. This epic Tony Award-winning musical depicts the struggles, successes, hopes, and dreams of a white, upper-middle class family in New Rochelle, an African-American musician and his girlfriend in Harlem, and a Jewish immigrant and his daughter on the Lower East Side. Interwoven with their stories are the newsmakers of the era — Harry Houdini, Booker T. Washington, J.P. Morgan, and Henry Ford among them. Minneapolis director Peter Rothstein has reenvisioned this originally massive musical as an innovative, highly theatrical production that, in today's world, resonates to the very heart.
