Bay Street Announces Cast for ‘Evita’
Life will loosely imitate art after this summer’s production of “Evita” at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor. The theater has announced the cast and creative team for the musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, which will open on July 31 with Arianna Rosario as Eva Peron, Omar Lopez-Cepero as her husband, Juan Peron, and Trent Saunders as Che. Ms. Rosario and Mr. Lopez-Cepero will be married in November.
Directed by Will Pomerantz, Bay Street’s associate artistic director, and choreographed by Marcos Santana, the intimately scaled, dance-filled production is set in an Argentinean tango club. The cast will also include Kyle Barisich as Magaldi and Gabi Campo as the mistress.
Ms. Rosario was most recently seen as Carla in the Kennedy Center’s production of “In the Heights.” Mr. Lopez-Cepero played Sky Masterson in the Theater Under the Stars’ Latin version of “Guys and Dolls.” Mr. Saunders was in “Aladdin the Musical” at the New Amsterdam Theater in Manhattan, where he will return in the fall.
