Looking Back on the Success of Evita

  2. 2. Introduction  A San Diego-based attorney with more than 30 years of experience, Terry Chucas represents parents and children engaged in dependency court appeals. When he is not protecting the legal rights of his clients, Terry Chucas enjoys attending plays and live performances. His favorite play is Evita. Evita opened on Broadway in September of 1979 after a successful run in London. Despite a lukewarm critical response, the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice collaboration went on to receive 11 nominations at the 34th Tony Awards. The production won a number of the ceremony’s most notable awards, including wins for leads Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin, director Harold Prince, Webber and Rice’s score and book, and the program’s top honor for Best Musical. Evita’s strong performance at the Tony’s was hardly the last the theater world would hear of it. The original production enjoyed 1,567 performances before closing in June of 1983, one of the 30 longest runs ever. A testament to the show's enduring popularity, Evita was revived in 2012 starring Elena Roger and Ricky Martin as Eva Peron and Che Guevara.
