The creative team features associate director-choreographer Michael Baxter, music director Anne Shuttlesworth, scenic designer Michael Schweikardt, costume designer Richard St. Clair, lighting designer Yael Lubetzky, sound designer Craig Beyrooti, production stage manager Mark Johnson, and assistant stage manager Amy Bertacini. Casting was done in New York by Wojcik/Seay Casting.
“When I work on revivals, I dig into the characters and relationships resulting in intimate rather than epic storytelling,” said Milgrom Dodge in a statement. “With this production of Evita, we are embarking on a storytelling approach that will illuminate Eva’s motives, in, what I hope will be, a very empathetic way. I hope the audience engages in Eva’s story with wonder, fascination, excitement, danger and passion.”
