Evita

Theater Review: "Evita"

 Marisa Matthews as "Eva Perón" in EVITA

Eva Perón is a great subject for theater.

Here’s a poor but pretty and extremely ambitious girl from Nowhere, Argentina who sleeps her way to the presidential mansion in Buenos Aires, not only marrying strongman Juan Perón but becoming an icon and a near saint in the process. What’s more dramatic than that?

THEATER REVIEW: “Evita”

“Evita” plays through Nov. 17 at San Diego Civic Theatre, Third and B streets, downtown.
