I saw Ricky when he was on Broadway the first time and he was great! I can’t wait to see him again.

# 4

This should be interesting, I can’t wait to see this one :)

# 5

miscasting all the way! CHE is the symbol for masculanity. WTF ?!?!

# 6

He doesn’t look like Che. He doesn’t look like Juan. And she needs to be blonde.

# 7

Ricky Martin will make GREAT Che! :)

“He doesn’t look like Che.”

Ricky plays Che, NOT Che Guevara.

“Che Guevara is not in Evita.
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice wanted to use a narrator who would be involved and so they made up Che, named after Che Guevara, who was a political extremist, just as Che is the musical is, but they did not really base the character on Che Guevara. Che acts as the voice of the people.”

He only got the role because he is a light-skinned P.Rican and not to objectionable looking to Argentinians. They would have never accepted a brown/black Puerto Rican just ask Zoe.

@Marianne: Eva actually starts off as a brunette… throughout the show, the more successful she becomes, the more blonder she becomes!!!

Michael Cerveris would be the ONLY reason to see this show. He’s an OUTSTANDING talent.

Evita + Ricky Martin + AC/DC T-shirt = ABSURD!

I will watch this show only for Michael.

I like Ricky Martin…but this might be a huge casting mistake:

I think he’s too good-looking for the role. Call me crazy, but I really think Che should not be so distractingly cute. It’s got mis-cast all over it.

Ricky rocks,
can’t wait to see him in EVITA!!!


Give it up, Ricky-haters.

If you think Ricky’s too good looking then Antonio Bandares was too good looking for the movie the movie then
