Relaxed Performance offered in collaboration with Spectrum Theatre Ensemble’s NICE program.
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Tony Award-winning rock opera Evita follows the adored and reviled Eva Perón’s meteoric rise from an impoverished childhood to first lady of Argentina until her death at 33. Directed by Sammi Cannold (Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Hollywood & Entertainment, Endlings, Violet), this eagerly anticipated revival featuring unforgettable songs including “Buenos Aires” and “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” explores how we make sense of contradictions in legacy.
This production includes haze, prop firearms, occasional strong language, and stylized violence and sexuality.
What Are Relaxed Performances?
Relaxed Performances, sometimes called Sensory Friendly Performances, are open to all audience members who could benefit from a more relaxed atmosphere at the theater. These performances feature a relaxed and inclusive attitude towards making sounds, moving, and using assistive devices; adjustments to the severity of sound and lighting cues; and quiet areas outside of the theater, for anyone who needs a break. A.R.T. works in consultation with an occupational therapist and other professionals to develop supports for each relaxed performance, which may include a social narrative and pre-show introduction to the characters. Relaxed performances offer accommodations to the theater-going experience and do not fundamentally alter the content of the productions.
