"Evita debuted in 1976 and marked the last Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice collaboration. Their first was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in 1968, followed in 1970 by Jesus Christ Superstar - three mega-hits usually described as rock opera."

A refreshing `Evita' revival

By J. WYNN ROUSUCK and J. WYNN ROUSUCK,SUN THEATER CRITIC | October 27, 2005

"Now that even Madonna has played the part, former Argentine first lady Eva Peron no longer seems as unlikely a subject for a musical as she once did. In an important sense, however, Peron was always ideally suited to the stage. After all, she began her career as an actress. For their 1978 musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice chose to emphasize the actress' political performance -- Evita's rise, reign, near deification and fall. And they chose the ideal politically savvy director, Harold Prince."

"If the advance word from Hollywood is to be believed, the film version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Evita" will finally make Madonna the movie star she has longed to be. In fact, the buzz on her performance is so strong that even those who would normally be nay-sayers are already lining up to sing her praises."
