Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and the Barbican Theatre announce, following its overwhelming sell-out success in 2019 at the Open Air Theatre, the 2019 Evening Standard Theatre Award-Winning and 8 time WhatsonStage.com Award Nominated production of Evita transfers to the Barbican Theatre for just 8 weeks in summer 2020 (27 June – 22 August). 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. Casting information will be announced in due course.
