Studio Tenn and TPAC make history with sensational 'Evita'

The opening of a new theatrical season is always cause for celebration. But those who gathered at Jackson Hall on Friday evening for Studio Tenn and TPAC’s much-anticipated production of “Evita” witnessed more than just a sensational performance – they saw history in the making.

The ambitious staging of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning musical marks the first time in TPAC’s 34-year history that the nonprofit has teamed up with a local theatre company to design and build a show for its Broadway series. I have a feeling it won’t be the last.
