Anthony Crivello stars opposite Espinosa in the Tennessee Performing Arts Center production.
Eden Espinosa (Wicked) and Tony winner Anthony Crivello (Kiss of the Spiderwoman) currently lead Evita at Tennessee Performing Arts Center's Andrew Jackson Hall in Nashville, Tennessee. With performances set to run through September 18, the production has released footage of the stars in action.
Crivello, who made his Broadway debut as Che in the original Broadway production of Evita, takes on the role of Juan Perón in the Studio Tenn production opposite Espinosa, who stars in the title role. The cast also includes Broadway veteran Ben Crawford (Big Fish) as Che, René Millán (The Wild Party) as Magaldi, and Nashville singer Mia Rose Lynne as the Mistress.
Featuring a Tony-winning score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice and a Tony-winning book by Rice, Evita tells the life story of Eva Perón, who captivated Argentina as the country's first lady. The production is being produced locally in a historic partnership with Nashville-area theater company Studio Tenn, led by Matt Logan and Jake Speck.
