Synopsis: Based on the life of Argentine first lady Eva Perón, Evita follows her rise from poverty, charity work and time as first lady.
Notable Songs: “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina” (obviously)
Why You Should See It: Though you may have seen the film adaptation starring Madonna more times than you can count, there’s nothing like seeing the real thing live. This revival has garnered rave reviews and is guaranteed to bring tears to your eyes.
