Evita left our spirits soaring
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR (Guardian)
Congratulations to ACT on their truly magnificent production of Evita. The principals were simply superb with immaculate timing and mellifluous voices. The company gave us delightfully detailed and concentrated work which brought out all aspects of the emotion, turmoil and public fascination with the amazing life of Eva Peron.
Mark Ramsay, Shirley Anne Cameron and Julia Sauve deserve our gratitude for setting a standard to which all productions should aspire.
The very clever settings, lighting choreography and costumes delighted the eye.
Altogether a wonderful evening reminding us of the magic of musical theatre, after a steady diet of musical revues on the mainstage.
The production left our spirits soaring with Eva and the angel.
M. Raymond Moore
