Featured Events

Evita 

Argentina's controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president's mistress at twenty-four, and First Lady at twenty-seven. With a score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, Evita creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.

*Admission $15, $10 for seniors or with a BC ID. Tickets available online at www.bc.edu/robsham or at 617-552-4002. Robsham Theater Arts Center.
