"Ever since joining Bay Street as Artistic Director, I have dreamt of bringing the brilliant musical Evita to our stage. So, the summer of 2018 is truly a dream come true for me!" noted Bay Street Theater Artistic Director Scott Schwartz. "In Will Pomerantz and Marcos Santana's dance-filled, visionary new production, the audience will be transported to a gritty Argentinean tango club where they will get closer to the iconic characters and beloved score than ever before. With a dazzling cast and first class design team, I know Evita will be a thrilling theatrical event unlike any we've presented before."
