The Broadway show Evita, who won seven Tony Awards back in 1979, is back at the Marquis Theatre! In case you don’t know, this Broadway hit made the song “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” very famous.
This version has Ricky Martin taking on the role of Che and critics are saying he’s “fabulous”. Martin has a great singing voice and a confident presence on stage. His co-star Elena Roger also has a strong voice, but will never be able to replace the iconic performance by her precedent Patti LuPone, who made that role hers.
All in all the show is a good one, but will need to exceed magnificence if it is to out-do the original! Meanwhile, the latin singer and his mustache promoted the Broadway show on Today yesterday where he and his cast-mate performed in Times Square.
Watch Ricky Martin sing “High Flying Adored”…
