Evita – The New Broadway Cast Recording

For the first time since it debuted over 30 years ago, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s seven-time Tony Award®-winning musical Evita is back on Broadway. It stars Grammy®-winning international superstar Ricky Martin as Ché, Olivier Award-winning Argentinean actress Elena Roger making her Broadway debut as Evita and Tony Award®-winner Michael Cerveris as Juan Perón. This 2-CD set, produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Nigel Wright, with Tim Rice as Executive Producer, is the first complete English language recording of the show since the original 1979 Broadway cast album. It features a limited edition outer sleeve and includes a bonus track of Elena Roger performing “Don’t Cry For Me” in
