The Answer is . . .
The lyric I quoted in my post earlier this week was from Evita.
Congrats to Mary for picking up the iTunes gift certificate.
A follow-up . . .
Evita closed on Broadway over 24 years ago . . . and has yet to be revived. Seems odd, considering that it was written by the most “successful” composer of the modern Broadway theater and that it was responsible for solidifying star status for its two leads.
So why hasn’t it been revived?
And, if it was revived right now, would it have the money rollin’ on in?
One reason it hasn’t been revived is that it was done pretty damn definitively the first time around, and no one has figured out a better way to tell that story . . . never mind finding someone worthy of standing on the Casa Rosada.
And we all know how important both of those things are.
Your thoughts on why it hasn’t come back and 142 Sondheim shows have? Did we really need Into The Woods again? Wouldn’t you all rather see Evita than another production of Gypsy (even if the original Eva is starring)?
