In the upcoming Broadway revival of the Tim Rice-Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Evita", Ernesto El Che Guevara will be played by...Ricky Martin. Insert your own joke here.
Evita herself will be played by the Argentine actress Elena Roger who was, I must say, quite good as Edith Piaf when we saw her last year here in Buenos Aires. No word on who will play General Perón. Hmmmm... John Goodman? J-Lo in drag?
The revival of "Evita"--the first new Broadway production of the Tony Award-winning musical since its 1979 New York debut--is scheduled to open in spring 2012.
