The Cincinnati Enquirer‘s Jackie Demaline gives Evita a rave review today, saying “If you didn’t know [CCM] was one of the top training programs in the U.S. going into the show, you will know it coming out.” You can read her full review here.

Today, CityBeat‘s Rick Pender reviews CCM’s Mainstage Production of Evita. “Senior Alaina Mills totally inhabits the leading role as the ‘high-flying adored’ de facto leader of Argentina in the late 1940s and early 1950s,” Pender writes. “Equally impressive is Pierce Cassedy as the show’s cynical narrator, a character based on political agitator Che Guevara, and Chris Blem is convincing as Juan Perón, the general who rose to power on the crest of Evita’s popularity.”
You can read his full review of the show here. Tickets to select performances of Evita are still available. Contact the CCM Box Office at 513-556-4183 for more information.
A beautifully produced show, CCM’s Evita is filled with effortless scene changes and special effects, strong vocals and choreography, striking costumes, compelling music and historic imagery. You’ll likely find yourself cheering along with the People of Argentina as they celebrate their love for First Lady Eva Perón (wonderfully played by senior Alaina Mills) and the powerful presence she exudes.
CCM’s Mainstage Series presents Evita tonight through Sunday, Nov. 21. Contact the CCM Box Office at 513-556-4183 or firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets. Learn more about Evita’s run at CCM here.
