St. Paul, Minn, - Theater Latte Da’s interpretation of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mega hit ‘rock-opera’ Evita is wowing audiences and enjoying rave reviews at the Ordway’s McKnight Theatre.
Evita is an inventive and compelling look at Perón’s rise from illegitimate country girl to a symbol of hope and change for Latin America. She was both loved and reviled during her time as Argentina’s first lady. Perfect ingredients for high drama and emotion in life and on stage.
Zoe Pappas, who plays Evita and Jared Oxborough who plays the narrator/protagonist Che joined us on KARE NEWS@4 to discuss their roles. Both actors consider this an “opportunity of a lifetime.”
Evita is being performed through November 14. For more ticket information head to www.ordway.org or you can call (651) 224-4222. Group discounts are also available.
