Leicester’s Curve To Stage New Production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita

Leicester’s Curve theatre will stage a brand-new production of Evita, running 27 November 2023 to 13 January 2024.

The iconic musical will be directed by Curve’s Artistic Director Nikolai and it builds on a fantastic year coming up for Leicester’s theatre. Evita is a legendary musical from Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber and will get the Made at Curve treatment with successes like Billy Elliot, 42nd Street and Grease already in their belts!

As Eva Duarte, a child born into poverty, she followed her dreams of becoming an actress. As Eva Perón, she captured the hearts of Argentina’s working classes, broke new ground for women in politics and became the most powerful woman in Latin America.

Follow the wild days and mad existence of one of history’s most glamorous, glorified and divisive figures in this multi-award-winning musical, which features countless unforgettable songs including ‘Buenos Aires’, ‘Another Suitcase in Another Hall’, ‘’Oh What a Circus’ and the anthemic ‘Don’t Cry for me Argentina’.

The news of this new production was announced at Curve’s season preview event on Monday 6 February. The event also revealed that multi-award-winning musical Come From Away will open its UK and Ireland tour in a Curve co-production at the theatre from 1-9 March 2024.

Winner of Best New Musical across the globe, Come From Away shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.

A Junkyard Dog Productions and Smith & Brant Theatricals production, the tour of Come From Away will be co-produced by Curve.

The theatre also revealed plans to welcome the stage adaptation of Markus Zusak’s best-selling novel The Book Thief. Following an acclaimed try-out season at Bolton’s Octagon Theatre last year, the musical will come to Leicester 29 September to 14 October 2023.

Tickets for Come From Away, Road and The Book Thief will be on sale to Curve Friends 7 February, Curve Supporters Wednesday 8 February, Curve Members, Groups and Access Register customers Thursday 9 February and on general sale Monday 13 February, all at 12noon.
