ABOUT THE STORY: Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world — while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. Evita tells Eva's passionate and unforgettable true story, and features some of theater's most beautiful songs, including "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and "High Flying, Adored." Don't miss the stunning new production of Evita, directed by Michael Grandage and choreographed by Rob Ashford, that Channel 4 New York calls “The Hottest Ticket In Town!”.

The featured show headliner quartet is the 2011 gold medal winners, "Old School". All 4 members of Old School have a rich barbershop past; they all grew up listening to their dad's sing barbershop. Old Schools's philosophy is to stay true to the musical roots of the hobby they all fell in love with as kids. To simply say they ring chords and sing the old songs is an understatement; they deliver a musical and visually delivery from the heart, which is believable, and sensitive to the song and its classic arrangement throughout.
There's certainly something for everyone and this show promises to be packed with entertainment, singing, dancing, and more than a few laughs along the way.
