An extraordinary lady will open the New Year for the U.S. Bank Broadway Across in America 2013-2014 season in Portland. Evita, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical about the unforgettable story of former Argentine First Lady Eva Duarte Peron, opens on January 7, 2014 at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts’ Keller Auditorium and runs in Portland through January 12.
Known around the world as one of the most powerful and prominent Latin American women in history, Eva Duarte Peron swiftly rose to power by marrying Colonel Juan Peron. When Peron became President in 1946, Eva became the Argentine Republic’s youngest First Lady at the ripe old age of 27. With her extensive charitable works, Eva became widely admired and adored as the Argentine masses’ champion. She became a saint-like figure in the eyes of her people after she passed away due to cancer in 1952.
Evita plays at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts on January 7 to 10 (Tuesday to Friday) at 7:30 PM, on January 11 (Saturday) at 2 PM and 7:30 PM, and on January 12 (Sunday) at 1 PM and 6:30 PM.
