Eva Perón was a badass and First Lady of Argentina from 1946-1952 who championed labor rights, women's suffrage and the working class. And then Madonna played her in the movie version. Eva, affectionately known as Evita, is still adored by the people of Argentina. Growing up in the poor working class provided Perón with first-hand experience of the hardships the lower class faced. She was able to take her personal history and use it to help campaign for them later in her career. See the rest of her story at Musical Theatre Southwest's production of Evita running April 7-30, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $20-$22. (Taylor Grabowsky)

A recount of Eva Perón’s meteoric rise from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady.

For decades, theater-lovers have thrilled to the story of EVITA, which recounts Eva Peron’s meteoric rise from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, yet reviled by the aristocracy as “trash,” she became one of the most powerful women in the world—while her greed, outsized ambition, and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. EVITA tells Eva’s passionate and unforgettable true story and features some of theater’s most beautiful songs, including “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall,” And “High Flying, Adored.”

 Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself. “EVITA is a big show with big personalities and a lush, beautiful score. I’m thrilled to be able to stage this in Musical Theatre Southwest’s intimate black box theatre where the audience can be so close. They will feel transported to the middle of the streets of Argentina to witness history,” says the show’s director Art Tedesco.
