BroadwayWorld was on the red carpet of EVITA's opening night after party last night, April 5, to celebrate with the company at the Marquis Theatre. The show is back on Broadway for the first time in more than 30 years and BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge was on hand to talk all about the big revival with EVITA leads Ricky Martin, Elena Roger, Michael Cerveris and more!
Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's landmark musical is led by Ricky Martin as Che, Elena Roger in her Broadway debut as Eva Perón and Michael Cerveris as Juan Perón, along with Max von Essen as Migaldi and Rachel Potter as the Mistress.
