AS PROMISED: EVITA!!!!!! (part 1)
Evita was written in the mid-1970's by Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice. It tells the story of Eva Peron, who started out life as a poor girl and ended up being the most famous mummy since King Tut. I'm not going to recount her whole story (check on line for that). The show is called an Broadway opera, because 90%, or so. is sung. Which is different from a regular musical. All the action is told through song. Here is Valdosta State University Theatre and Dance Program's production of Evita!
So, she runs off with a tango singer, Magaldi. Played by Josh Barcol on the left and Wendell Hester on the right. The part was double cast. Magaldi was a real person, but she probably didn't run off with him. It makes a better story.
"Goodnight and Thank You, Magaldi"
"Goodnight and Thank you, Mr. Business Man"
"Goodnight and Thank you, Whoever"
Rumor has it she slept her way to the top. Maybe, maybe not, but it's a funny bit. Mr, Business Man is played by Blake Fountain and Whoever is Micheal McClain.
At this event Eva and Juan met for the first time.
