Brunish Theatre -- Portland
Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical masterpiece Evita charts the young and ambitious Eva Peron’s meteoric rise to sainthood. Set in Argentina between 1934-1952, the Tony-winning musical that includes songs such as "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" follows Eva Duarte on her journey from poor illegitimate child to ambitious actress to, as wife of military leader-turned-president Juan Peron, the most powerful woman in Latin America.
A new musical by Bernadette Contreras and Robbie Woliver, is based on the critically acclaimed book Bringing It All Back Home by Woliver, a New York Times bestselling author. The book and play cover the history of the Greenwich Village music scene, specifically the legendary music venue Gerdes Folk City (which Woliver owned) and the popular folk, blues, pop and rock artists and classic songs that came out of that three-decade scene from 1961 to 1986. The play features the most rousing theatrical folk-pop-rock soundtrack yet.
