Ricky Martin's Evita set for March previews

Ricky Martin's updated Evita will hit the Broadway stage in March (12).

The pop star will portray Che Guevara in the musical, which will officially open at the Marquis Theatre in New York on 5 April (12). Previews will begin a month before.

Michael Cerveris will play Juan Peron in the production and Argentine actress Elena Roger will take on the title role after wowing London audiences as Evita.

The show marks the first revival of the Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice musical since it first debuted over 30 years ago. It's Martin's first time on Broadway since he played Marius in Les Miserables in 1999.
