    Her voice is a little too “I studied musical theatre all my life” for my
    taste. She sings very well, but there is no…fire. When LuPone sings,
    whether you like her or not, there is no doubt you are listening to Patti
    LuPone. I’ve found that to be true of most greats. Ms. Bowman is obviously
    talented, she could easily get lost in the shuffle of other singers with
    similar voices. I blame vocal coaches and voice teachers for this. Let’s
    go back to the days of teaching people to sing beautifully and healthily,
    without compromising their natural voice and style.

    She has got that star quality. I wonder if head mic was used during this
    run? Her vibrato is close to Patty Lupone. Lupone set a standard for me.
    She out her heart in this song and sung like there was no tomorrow or care
    for her voice.

    I love Patti, Elena, and Caroline, their Evas are very different but
    equally interesting in my opinion. I love being able to experience such
    diverse performances, each one of them is amazing, just in a different way.
    I did like Madonna’s performance but more as a fun new take on the role,
    definitely do not look at her performance in the same way I look at
    Broadway Evas, you can’t compare people who are not in the same category
    when it comes to their vocal skills. Madonna can sing her songs just fine,
    but she has no theatrical singing training, and the fact that they had to
    change the keys for her for the movie feels like a slap in the face to the
    people who wrote the score.

    THE FIRST VERSION OF EVITA,1977,WAS MADE UNREAL,WITH A LOT OF RAGE TO
    HER,..SHE WAS THE CORRUPTED, MAQUIAVELIC EVITA.. THAT THE RICH PEOPLE AND
    INTELLECTUALS PEOPLE HATED,,,PATTI AND ELAINE PAGE, MUST TO DO THIS
    ROLLE,THIS KIND OF EVITA WITH OUT KNOWNG THE REAL
    EVITA….(AFTERWARDS,ELAINE WENT TO B.AIRES TO KNOW THE REAL EVITA)
    , ELENA AND OTHERS EVITAS,PLAY NOWDAYS,A LITTLE BIT MORE REAL EVITA AND
    THAT BRINGS THE CHANGE…SHE WASNT A SAINT BUT SHE WASNOT A BAD PERSON
    INDEED

    She is just unreal. By far the most well-rounded Evita I’ve seen. (not
    better just the most well rounded) Patti is great.

    Wow! That’s a hell of a song to sing without all the dancing. Amazing. Love
    it!

    ugh. she is my favorite eva in the history of ever. and i’ve heard patti,
    elena, and madonna. i saw this show twice when it came here on tour because
    she wasn’t on the first time i went and i HAD to see her live. just my
    luck, she wasn’t on the second time either. oh well, guess listening to
    these videos on repeat will have to do.

    Much stronger than Elena Roger but it could be one of a thousand musical
    theatre belty soprano’s. One note of LuPone and you know exactly who it is
    and she sang the whole thing in chest

    I beg to differ. I heard Patti sing at 54 Below this summer, and she sings
    the Evita score with more power and emotion in her 60s than this young
    lady. It is always wonderful to see what a new artist brings to the role,
    but Patti’s longevity is due to her unique vocal pyrotechnics accompanied
    by her classic training (Julliard). I am all for recognition to new talent,
    but not at the expense of one of the greats like Miss Lupone.

    I grew up listen to Patti sing this role…to me she is and will always be
    the voice of Evita. I can’t help it. I will always compare whoever sings
    this role to her. I think it’s true with whomever you “first” heard in a
    performance. Whether it’s Idina in Wicked or Lea in Miss Saigon…it’s very
    hard to get away from the originals. Doesn’t make anyone more/less
    talented, just a matter of preference. IMO. I didn’t even know this show
    was coming to Charlotte until tonight – snatched 2 box seats!

    Herman Munster, not sure if you are referring to Elena Roger or to the
    actress on this actual video. If you talk about Elena Roger I don’t agree
    with you. I think Elena was unique, she brought her own style and has
    nothing to do with Lupone. I actually don’t like the Lupone style, she made
    Evita look like a Show Girl, there was nothing true to Evita on Lupone. She
    was a great singer and actress on stage, but not loyal to the real Evita.
    Elena makes it perfectly. Same as she did with Piaf.

    My point exactly. DON’T compare artists. Remember…you were the one who
    started this by saying that Caroline was stronger vocally than Patti. Every
    artist has a contribution to make and the evaluation of their artistry does
    not have to be made in comparison to another, in this case the Tony winning
    originator of the role.

    She is the best Eva I have ever heard vocally. She is no joke.

    um….. she’s ok. the dancing suuucked and whoever plays Che need to go.
    Ever since the 1996 movie, the music score for the stage has been lowered
    and sounds shitty compared to the original broadway cast.

    honest

    They could’ve chosen better footage of the funeral. That shot of
    pallbearers carrying her casket into the CGT building does not show what a
    circus event it was. They should’ve shown footage of the actual procession
    with Eva’s casket atop a gun carriage being pulled down the streets of
    Buenos Aires with thousands of mourners on the side.

    I think this is a brilliant staging of this number. When the orchestra
    swells and the curtains move to the side to showcase the headline EVA PERON
    DIES literally brought chills up my spine. Perfectly timed and the newsreel
    footage is clear, unlike previous versions where the footage was small, and
    fuzzy. I would love to see this version and hope it comes to Toronto one
    day.

    8:55 to 9:55 continues to be my favorite moment from any musical that I
    have seen. This tour was my first time watching the show so I didn’t know
    what was happening at first but as each woman walked away and line by line
    the singing voices disappeared until there was only one left, and then the
    final woman there slowly pulled the hood off her head, my heart absolutely
    stopped. I knew it was Eva. I knew it was Caroline Bowman. And a feeling of
    excitement and adoration immortalized itself in me then like falling in
    love or seeing the world for the first time and just simply knowing that
    there is so much more in store just around the corner. Like… wow. I will
    never, ever forget that feeling. Every time I hear that part of the song I
    remember and it’s a magic I can’t describe. Thank you for posting this so I
    may relive it over and over ❤ Now if only they would just film this
    ridiculously amazing cast… I would pay BIG money for something like that,
    that’s for sure!

    I can’t stop watching this!!! When I saw this on tour last week it blew me
    away! SO glad this video is on here 🙂 Josh is brilliant! Especially when
    he says “Oh, what an exit” LOVE IT.

    excellent Che.

    Josh Young can sing like crazy—–
    It’s too bad that this production sucks all the life out of one of the best
    shows ever

    Thank you so much for posting this. I’ve seen this Evita road tour 7 times.
    It should be filmed or recorded. Much has to do with the three stars Josh,
    Caroline and Sean. All first class, loaded with talent and good looks.
