EVITA National Tour Debuts at The Fox Theatre


 “Charity separates the rich from the poor; aid raises the needy and sets them on the same level with the rich.”
Evita Peron

Evita National Tour, the first British musical to receive the Tony Award for Best Musical, debuted on June 3, 2014 at the Fox Theatre. Evita the musical, follows Evita's early life, rise to power, charity work, and eventual death. The musical is emotional, seductive and energetic. It portraits Evita Perón's foundation that aimed to eradicate poverty and societal inequalities in Argentina. Evita empowered the masses by becoming a symbol of triumph over the poverty and oppression of the old social order. Her life forever changed the political landscape of Latin America by showing her people that even the most disenfranchised among them could rise to the highest levels of influence, and could do so from within the system and not by revolution.

            Tuesday-Thursday  7:30 p.m.

Experience the passion and seduction in this elegant masterpiece, Tony Award®-winning musical EVITApresented as part of the Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Atlanta 2013/2014 season at the Fox Theatre.

Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady.
