Washington Post- Highly Recommended
"...The production, minted at American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass., and transplanted now to Shakespeare Theatre Company’s flagship space, makes a persuasive case for “Evita” as the most artistically vibrant musical in the Lloyd Webber canon. (Admittedly the competition is less than fierce.) Cannold looks shrewdly into the story of Argentina’s tornadic first lady to dismantle some of the mythology. She unearths neither monster nor martyr, but rather a woman armored by misfortune who manages to find her fortune."

"...A new production of “Evita,” with rumored Broadway ambitions, has landed at Shakespeare Theatre Company. First conceived for the 2019 New York City Center (NYCC) Gala Presentation, then revised earlier this summer at the American Repertoire Theatre (A.R.T.) in Boston, this version amps up the politics and dials back the visual design of this classic Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. Excellent choreography adds vitality to the megawatt showstopper score, but the production could otherwise use just a little touch more star quality."
