Evita Casting Updates

There are a number of stories I wanted to get out there today, so I will be combining them into one article here. One involves a casting update for the upcoming Broadway revival of Evita. The others are announcements for shows that are looking to come to Broadway in the near future.

It has been announced that Max Von Essen and Rachel Potter will be joining the cast of the Broadway revival of Evita, playing the roles of Magaldi (Evita's first romance in the show) and his mistress, respectively. They will be joining previously announced stars Ricky Martin as Che, Elena Roger as Eva Peron, and Michael Cerveris as Juan Peron. The production, with a score by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, will be directed by Michael Grandage and choreographed by Rob Ashford. Previews begin March 12th with opening set for April 5th.

The creative team for Evita will feature scenic and costume designer Christopher Oram, lighting designer Neil Austin, sound designer Mick Potter, wig and hair designer Richard Mawbey, projection designer Zachary Borovay and music supervisor/director Kristen Blodgette.
