One event on February 23, 2020 at 2:00 pm
The Wick Theatre in Boca Raton is proud to present their fan favorite pick of the year, Evita. The production features Broadway star Sean McDermott, and American’s Got Talent sensation Daniella Mass in the iconic musical. The astonishing Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice mega-hit won multiple Tony Awards including Best Musical 1980 and Best Revival 2012. The Wick Theatre’s production runs January 16 through February 23, with 2pm matinee and 7:30pm evening performances. Tickets, $75-$95, are available at www.thewick.org or by calling 561-995-2333.
“We are thrilled to be mounting this production of Evita,” said Marilynn A. Wick, Managing Executive Producer. “Daniella Mass performed here with Nestor Torres a couple of seasons ago. We were overwhelmed by her talent and wanted to collaborate with her again. Having sung with legends like Jose Carreras and Andrea Boccelli, Daniella’s soaring Coloratura Soprano has garnered her a world-wide fan base.”
Playing Juan Peron, Marilynn has secured Broadway star Sean McDermott who was last seen at The Wick as the Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance. His dazzling Broadway career includes lead roles in Miss Saigon, Falsettos, Chicago, Grease and more. And starring as Che, Michael Focas, a captivating young talent, makes his Wick debut. Evita will be directed by Norb Joerder with musical direction by Darren Cohen and choreography by Stephen Casey. Kimberly Wick is designing the set and Marilynn Wick and her team are creating the costumes.
Evita charts the young and ambitious Eva Peron’s meteoric rise to power. Set in Argentina between 1934-1952, the musical follows Eva Duarte on her journey from poor illegitimate child to ambitious actress to, as wife of military leader-turned-president Juan Peron, the most powerful woman in Latin America, before her death from cancer at age 33.
