Evita retuning to West End for limited run at the Dominion starring Marti Pello & Madalena Alberto

It has been confirmed that Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita is returning to the West End for a limited run at the Dominion Theatre.

Opening on Monday 22nd September (previews from 16th September), the production will run for 55 performances only until Saturday 1st November. Marti Pello and Madalena Alberto will reprise their performances from the UK Tour as Che Guevara and Eva Peron with direction by Bill Kenwright and Bob Tomson.

Evita will be the first show to run at the Dominion following its renovation work and the closure of We Will Rock You. White Christmas opens at the theatre on 12th November starring Aled Jones and Tom Chambers.

Evita charts the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, from her humble beginnings through to the extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’. The score features ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’, ‘On This Night of a Thousand Stars’, ‘You Must Love Me’, and ‘Another Suitcase in Another Hall’.

For over 30 years Marti Pellow has enjoyed global success as the lead singer of Wet Wet Wet and as a solo artist. He has appeared in The Witches of Eastwick, Chess, Jekyll & Hyde, Chicago and Blood Brothers.

Madalena Alberto’s theatre credits include playing the title role in Piaf (Curve), Fantine in the Les Misérables (25th Anniversary production), Lucy in Jekyll and Hyde, Carmen Diaz in Fame, Sam in Over the Threshold and Sonia in Godspell. Her first album Don’t Cry For Me will be released to coincide with Evita's opening.
