EVITA: Theatre Review
Us Janes were lucky enough to head to the West end for the press night of the wonderfully heart warming return of EVITA.
In short EVITA is set in Argentina in the 1930s-50s and follows Eva Duarte, a girl who dreams of making it big in the bright lights of the big city (what Jane doesn’t, babe!) She moves to Buenos Aires and through making the ‘right’ friends’ and her in-the-right-place-at -the-right-time attitude quickly becomes a actress. When she meets Juan Peron, their love affair sees her become First Lady of Argentina. A true modern female she dedicates her fame to help fight for women’s suffrage and improving the lives of the poor. The people love her, we love her, you will love her – basically because you want to be her!
