Eden Espinosa and Anthony Crivello Discuss Their Work in Evita
As Eden Espinosa (Wicked) and Tony winner Anthony Crivello (Kiss of the Spiderwoman) get ready to conclude their run in Evita at Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville on September 18, the two stars gathered for a morning coffee and discussion of the production.
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.
