Ricky Martin Joins Broadway's EVITA

Ricky Martin will star as Che in the Broadway revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice‘s Evita. Argentinean actress Elena Roger will reprise her West End performance as Eva Perón.

“I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to perform on many of the world’s largest concert stages, but I’ve never lost my love for the intimacy of the theater,” said Ricky. “I’m delighted to know that after I’ve had the chance to share new music and tour over the coming year, that I will then return once again to Broadway. I’m looking forward to playing such an essential part in Michael Grandage’s wonderful production and the chance to work with the tremendously talented Elena Roger.”

The show is targeting a spring 2012 opening!

Ricky, who came out publicly in March, has performed on Broadway before — he played the romantic lead, Marius Pontmercy, in the hit musical Les Miserables.
