Still want to be “Livin’ Evita Loca,” as the backstage joke goes? Time is running out.
Producers Hal Luftig and Scott Sanders said Monday that the top-billed cast of “Evita” will play its final performance on Saturday, Jan. 26. That’s your last opportunity to see Ricky Martin as Che, Olivier Award-winning Argentinean actress Elena Roger as Eva Perón and Tony Award-winner Michael Cerveris as Juan Perón.
The production of Tim Rice’s and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical will continue its open-ended run at the Marquis Theatre following the original stars’ departure, producers said. New stars will be announced soon.
In July, Cerveris talked to NBC 4 New York about traveling to Argentina as part of his research for his role.
