Starring Buffalo is proud to present EVITA, the soaring epic musical by seven-time Tony Award winner Andrew Lloyd Webber (The Phantom of the Opera, Cats) and three-time Academy Award winner Tim Rice (The Lion King, Jesus Christ Superstar). Set in Argentina between 1934 and 1952, EVITA charts Eva Peron’s rise to become the most powerful woman in Latin America, and features some of musical theater’s finest songs, including the international smash hit “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina”.
The cast will feature Broadway stars Krystina Alabado (Mean Girls, American Idiot) as Eva, Robi Hager (Spring Awakening, Bye Bye Birdie) as Che and Nicholas Rodriguez (Tarzan, The Sound of Music) as Peron, performing alongside Buffalo area stars Darryl Semira (Broadway’s Mamma Mia and Bombay Dreams) as Magaldi and Leah Berst (MusicalFare’s Bright Star) as The Mistress. Buffalo’s best join them on stage for each unforgettable performance: Karen Grace Harty, Matthew Iwanski – Jackson, Katy Miner, Ben Michael Moran, Matt Rivera, Raphael Santos and Alex Watts, as well as nearly 100 Western New York singers, dancers, and musicians.
STARRING BUFFALO shows offer Buffalo audiences unrivaled access to Broadway’s greatest theater artists, and provides Western New York students the chance to learn from, work alongside, and be inspired by the stars in both master classes and performances. The organization launched in 2018 with THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME starring Broadway’s Ben Fankhauser (Newsies, Spring Awakening) and Dan’yelle Williamson (Memphis, The Lion King), and presented LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS starring Matt Doyle (Company, The Book of Mormon) and Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Hairspray, Legally Blonde) at their new home, Shea’s 710 Theater, earlier this year.
