Tango Buenos Aires: Song of Eva Perón
Actress, First Lady, philanthropist, saint. Eva Perón—or “Evita”—was many things to many people, and even her 1952 passing couldn’t dim her legendary status around the world. This transformation into international icon began when she moved to Buenos Aires at age 15, so what better way to tell her story than with artists from Argentina’s capital?
In Song of Eva Perón, the internationally-acclaimed dancers of Tango Buenos Aires do just that, chronicling Perón’s life with their signature virtuosity and sensual commitment to the form. They follow her experiences from childhood poverty to adolescent fame to First Lady and political advocate, and finally, to the death mourned by a nation. Traditional Buenos Aires music underscores the spectacle, which coalesces as a celebration of tango and Argentinian culture.
State Theatre New Jersey
The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
