Evita at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre

FOLLOWING its overwhelming sell-out success at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in 2019, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita is transferring to the Barbican Theatre for an eight week run – from June 27 to August 22, 2020.

Reinvented by director Jamie Lloyd, his transformative production was seen by over 75,000 people at the Open Air Theatre, becoming the theatre’s highest grossing production ever.

The musical premiered in the West End in 1978 and features a chart-topping score including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh! What A Circus, Another Suitcase in Another Hall and the Academy Award-winning You Must Love Me, originally performed by Madonna in the motion picture.

Jamie Lloyd is joined by the full Creative Team from the Regent’s Park production – Designer Soutra Gilmour, Choreographer Fabian Aloise, Musical Supervisor Alan Williams, Lighting Designer Jon Clark, Sound Designer Nick Lidster for Autograph and Fight Director Kate Waters.

Casting for the transfer will be announced in due course.
