'Evita' at the Broadway Theatre of Pitman: A woman's life, sung and danced with brio
Christina Fuscellaro belts out Peron’s songs in a clear mezzo, sometimes overpowering Juan Peron (baritone Andrew Jarema). With her looks and presence, Fuscellaro could do more. But the show plays down her character’s festive side. We see little of her wacky European tour, where the blond bombshell advocated for the poor while dressing up like a Christian Dior diva, faced down the English monarchy and was mobbed by exuberant millions on her return.
