Don’t cry for me, Shrewsbury

Following its smash hit runs in London, Bill Kenwright’s production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Evita’ is set to thrill audiences in Shropshire.

Telling the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, the musical follows Eva’s journey from humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately lead her to be heralded as the spiritual leader of the nation.

The show stars two of musical theatre’s most outstanding leading performers; Madalena Alberto returns to the role of Eva, a role for which she was critically acclaimed in the 2014 West End revival. Other theatre credits include the role of Piaf at the Curve Theatre and Fantine in the 25th anniversary production of ‘Les Misérables’. In the role of Che, fresh from the recent West End production, is Gian Marco Schiaretti, who played the title role in Disney’s production of ‘Tarzan’.

Featuring one of the most famous and evocative songs in musical theatre, ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’, the show visits Theatre Severn from Tuesday 3 to Saturday 7 April, with tickets priced from £20.50-£45.50 – visit or call 01743 281281 to book.
