The historical drama features with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, and relates to viewers the real life tale of Argentine political leader Eva Perón, second wife of president Juan Perón. It recalls her childhood, early acting ambition, calculated rise to power, controversial charity efforts and death through such iconic songs as “Don’t Cry for me Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall” and “Oh What a Circus.”
