Evita @ Sutton Coldfield Town Hall in Sutton Coldfield

Following their sell out success of Sister Act in January 2018, Tudor MCS are delighted to announce their 2019 production, the iconic musical, “Evita”

Evita, the story of ambitious, charismatic Eva Duarte, opens in a Buenos Aires cinema when suddenly the death is announced of Eva Peron, nee Duarte, and affectionately known by the people of Argentina as “Evita”

Eva Peron used her brains and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world – whilst her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic.

Evita tells the Eva’s passionate and unforgettable true story, featuring some of theatre’s most beautiful songs such as “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina”, “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”, “High Flying Adored” and “You Must Love Me.” The original London production opened in June 1978 and enjoyed a run of over 8 years, 2900 performances and, after over 40 years, Evita continues to enthral audiences worldwide!

With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, this show is a guaranteed sensation!

The album has spawned an array of huge singles including “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” and “High Hopes” – the latter was the band’s first UK Top 40 single since Nine in the Afternoon in March 2008 and has accumulated over 120 million UK streams to date. Panic! At Disco’s prior and fifth studio album ‘Death of a Bachelor’ was nominated for ‘Best Rock Album’ at the 2017 GRAMMY Awards and hasn’t left the UK Top 200 albums chart in over two and a half years: the album has sold over 250,000 copies in the UK.
