High Flying Adored ... and Coming Back to Broadway
An upcoming revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Evita", the show that made Patti LuPone a star in 1979, will be coming back to Broadway. Directed by Michael Grandage, the artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse who directed the 2006 London revival, will helm this production which will bring that production's star Elena Roger to our shores as Eva Peron. According to the announcement in the New York Times, producers are looking for a household name for the role of Che. The production is likely to appear in the spring of the 2011-2012 season.
