“There are many people to congratulate on The Rep’s unforgettable production of “Evita,” but you won’t see most of them on stage.
Director Rob Ruggiero’s vision and sense of storytelling and history brings this singular tale of corruption, coupled with saintly sex appeal, vividly to life. History has never been confident on whether Eva Peron was a sinner or a saint. This production reveals she was always a little of both.
Pepe Nufrio as Che is a powerful presence, although not costumed in fatigues and a beret, which is normally done.”
