Argentina’s controversial first lady returns to Broadway for the first time since her star-making original run, with a cast that includes Elena Roger and pop idol Ricky Martin.

“Despite the hard work of its spirited leading lady, the Argentine actress Elena Roger — supported by a barely there Ricky Martin and a sterling Michael Cerveris — this musical combination of history pageant and requiem Mass feels about as warmblooded as a gilded mummy.” New York Times

“This is a big, fat, juicy blockbuster of a show.” New York Post

“Even if you don’t like Andrew Lloyd Webber’s music, it will hold your eye from curtain to curtain.” Wall Street Journal

“Director Michael Grandage scores with a dynamic new Evita, graced by an impressive performance from Argentinean actress Elena Roger and the ticket-selling presence of recording star Ricky Martin, who acquits himself nicely if not remarkably.” Variety
