THEQUEEN’SLIST Don’t Cry For Me Evita Returns To Belk Theater he Tony Award®winning musical “Evita” returns to Belk Theater March 4 through 9, featuring some of theater’s most beautiful songs, including “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina.” The creation of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, “Evita” is the story of Eva Perón, who used her beauty and charisma to rise from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world — while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic.
