Manly Musical Society is currently presenting the evergreen musical EVITA charting the extraordinary journey of Eva Peron (Keira Connelly) from the slums, heading to the top of society, until she becomes the most powerful woman in Argentina.
Director Carl Olsen, has brought the world of the play vividly to life, and we follow everything that happened to Eva up until her untimely death in 1952 including her extensive charity work and her passionate romances, most famously with President Peron (Neville Bereyne)
In this excellent revival every member of the ensemble was in great voice. Costumes, choreography and the minimalist and very flexible set added to the experience.
After interval, Eva’s costumes were truly magnificent. A guilty pleasure was the wonderful quality of the presentation of the many love songs and ensemble pieces.
Duration 120 minutes with one interval.

Thursday 26 November at 7.30pm
Friday 27 November at 7.30pm
