Hal Prince To Direct
Touring Production of “Evita”

Renowned producer / director Hal Prince is teaming with choreographer Larry Fuller to recreate the Tony Award-winning Tim Rice - Andrew Lloyd Webber musical “Evita,” coming to Boston’s Colonial Theatre from November 2 - 14.

The winner of seven Tony Awards, “Evita” brings to life the dynamic persona of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator, Juan Peron. Blessed with charisma, Eva captured a nation by championing the working class. The epic story of her rise and fall is told in a sweeping pop opera featuring one of Broadway’s most well-known anthems, “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.”

Casting for the tour has yet to be announced. Elaine Paige starred in the original London production while Patti Lupone played the role of Eva on Broadway.

Hal Prince is the recipient of 20 Tony Awards in a career that has stretched over half a century and included the premiere productions of “She Loves Me,” “Cabaret,” “Company,” “Follies,” “Sweeney Todd,” “The Phantom of the Opera” among many others.

Fuller received a Tony nomination in 1980 for Best Choreography for “Evita.” His other credits include “Sweeney Todd,” “On The Twentieth Century,” “Merrily We Roll Along” and has twice staged and choreographed both the Tony and Emmy Awards.

Tickets are available at the box office at The Colonial Theatre, The Wilbur Theatre or The Opera House. Tickets may also be purchased by calling 617-931-2787 or visiting www.broadwayacrossamerica.com.
