Theater Latte Da takes on Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Weber's musical about everyone's favorite Argentinean first lady with questionable politics. It's not difficult to comprehend why this show keeps on ticking; in addition to its vivid and catchy tunes, it tells the story of a marginalized country girl who rose up via the power of her personality to become a symbol of hope and transcendence. History has blurred some of the particulars of Evita's story, but such is the fate of an icon—someone who served as a blank slate upon which all manner of aspirations and dreams could be sketched. You probably shouldn't cry for her, though it's worthwhile to take in her story. (Image by George Byron Griffiths)
