Report: ‘Evita’ Back for More on Broadway

Martin The production that debuted in 1979 at the Broadway Theatre and ran for three and a half years is set for a revival, according to New York Post columnist Michael Riedel. Citing an unnamed source, Riedel claims the lead role will be played by unknown Argentinean actress Elena Rogers. “She is wonderful but, let’s be honest, she’s not going to sell a ticket,” the production source told the Post. “You have to have a star to build an advance today, even for ‘Evita.’” Riedel also claims that Ricky Martin has been asked to play Che Guevara opposite Rogers to boost star power, but that no deal is in place. Michael Grandage (“Hamlet”) is rumored to be set to direct.
