Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony-winning Evita follows the tumultuous life of the famed first lady of Argentina, detailing her rise to power and embarrassing compulsion to break into rock-opera tunes. When she was just 15 years old, Eva Perón fled from the squalor she was born into, running toward the warm lights of Buenos Aires. Blessed with charisma and steered by hard determination, she soon seduced her way up the city's social ladder, becoming in turns a model, radio star, and actress. By 27 she was the second wife of Argentine president Juan Perón, but she wasn't content to be a presidential ornament. Eva instead used her position of influence to fight for the rights of the working class, becoming a point of contention for the political elite before fading away at age 33. The indelible "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina," anchors a score lifted by Latin, jazz, and pop influences, reminding audiences why the original production won seven Tony awards and the story made it all the way to the silver screen.
Warner Theatre serves as profound evidence that grassroots efforts can make a difference in the arts. Opened by Warner Brothers Studios in 1931, the Thomas Lamb–designed cinema house served for more than 20 years as the area's top venue to gawk at the silver screen. Yet business declined with the rise of the television, and in 1955 a flood left the venue severely damaged. It was hardly a surprise, then, when the Warner faced foreclosure in 1981. But a non-profit, citizen-run group called the Northwest Connecticut Association for the Arts raised the $275,000 needed to rescue the theatre, and repaired the years' damages to the art-deco design. Today, more than 800 volunteer actors, musicians, designers, and crew members bask in the applause and gleefully thrown lorgnettes of an estimated 35,000-plus patrons each season.
