Marti Pellow will star in Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita at Hall For Cornwall in Truro and Bristol Hippodrome this autumn.
Multi-platinum-selling Wet Wet Wet front-man turned West End star Marti Pellow will take on the role of Che in Evita – joining Madalena Alberto who stars as Eva Peron.
Marti has starred in the West End, on Broadway, in Japan and on national tours in shows such as the smash-hit musical Blood Brothers, the sold-out The Witches of Eastwick, Jekyll & Hyde, Chicago and The War of the Worlds.
Featuring some of the most famous and inspiring stage music ever written, including the classics Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, Oh What A Circus, You Must Love Me and Another Suitcase in Another Hall, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s extraordinary musical Evita embarks on a spectacular national tour.
Bringing to life the dynamic persona of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, Evita tells the story of Eva’s humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately lead her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people.
With more than 20 major awards to its credit, including the Oscar-winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, and featuring one of the most coveted roles in musical theatre, this smash hit show truly promises to be the theatrical event of the year.
The Sunday Express calls it ‘a monumental show’ while The Stage defies ‘anybody who sees this production to say they have seen a better one’.
