I finally saw Evita on Broadway on Tuesday night. I initially couldn't wait to see this revival: come on, Michael Cerveris is one of the stars! But then I heard from friends that the leading lady's voice is dubious and that the other star was just okay, so I decided I could wait, not really wanting to pay top dollar for this consistently sold out show. Apparently, and luckily for me, the other star is the one who is apparently drawing in the most audience members and thanks to his vacation this week, I scored a GoldClub ticket. I have to say that I actually LOVED the production and despite the leading lady's, shall we say odd, voice, I was captivated, chilled and thrilled every moment. The lighting and scenery is gorgeous and Rob Ashford's choreography is breathtaking. And no surprise, Michael Cerveris was better than I knew he would be.
I'm also changing my name to Sarita.
