Evita is coming to Kansas City!

One of the theater's most famous and enduring plays is the musical story of Evita! It's a legendary tale of romance, politics, womanhood, the struggle for life and fame.

All this is captured by writer Tim Rice and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber in the story of Evita that's being performed by one of America's leading theatrical groups, The Kansas City Repertory Theater. The show dates are September 9th to October 2nd. Performances are nightly, Tuesday through Saturday, with two performances on Sundays.

We're delighted to let you know that Piropos Restaurant located in Briarcliff Village will also be at each performance offering for sale our famous Argentine empanadas before the show and during intermission. There'll be a typical Buenos Aires food cart just in front of the main Spencer Theatre entrance where Piropos will have a selection of Argentina's favorite "finger food". We hope you'll join us for great entertainment and music, a magnificent theater environment on the beautiful UMKC campus and a Taste of Argentina.
