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.
The Umbrella began as a high school. Built in 1929, the town's first steel-beamed building was filled with bright young minds for more than half a century. But when the school outgrew its building, it moved, and set the stage for for the structure's second life. The Umbrella's group of founding volunteers created a community-arts center that saved the building from demolition while also sticking to its original spirit, ensuring it be used for education. Today, owned by the town and managed by The Umbrella, the center hosts studio space for more than 50 artists, workshops and classes for kids and grown-ups, a performance space for arts events of all disciplines.
