Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s hit musical based on the life of Evita Duarte, the most beloved and hated woman in Argentina. Even though she never held public office she was given a state funeral that over 3 million attended, mourning extended for weeks and flowers had to be flown in from Chile because there were none to be had in country
Her story was so mesmerizing and gripping, it made stars of Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin, ran for nearly 1,600 performances on Broadway, and swept the Tonys for 1980 with six awards including “Best Musical.”
And now Macon has a date on this limited national tour. Don’t miss this chance to see a timeless classic in a vivid new stage production.
The winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash “captures the kid-at-heart,” says TIME Magazine. Directed by visionary Tony®-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award® winning film, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother.
Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. “Far and away the best musical of the year!” –NPR.
