  • Ticket Liquidator is a resale marketplace, not a ticket seller. Prices are set by third-party sellers and may be above or below face value.

    close

    Ticket Liquidator is a nationwide network through which professional companies and trusted individuals resell tickets to events. This means that we don't charge your card, nor do we own, price, or ship the tickets listed for sale on our marketplace. The tickets are owned instead by hundreds of sellers who re-price their tickets based on the popularity of the event and the number of tickets available.
  • All seats are together unless stated otherwise.

    close

    We understand that people often attend events with friends or family and want to be located near the ones they love. Therefore, although seat numbers are not listed, we guarantee that tickets purchased through Ticket Liquidator will be together unless explicitly stated otherwise (e.g. the seller advertises the tickets as being "piggybacked" or "split") or the tickets are General Admission.
  • Tickets are not guaranteed to ship immediately.

    close

    The sellers who list tickets on our marketplace access tickets from a variety of sources - venues, fan clubs, event promoters, industry insiders, and even other ticket resellers. Some sellers may have to wait to receive tickets from their supplier due to ticket printing or distribution delays. Please note, though, that delayed delivery does not change the fact that you are guaranteed to receive your tickets by the date of the event once your order is accepted by the seller. Sellers also do their best to advertise expected delivery delays on their listings in order to help you make an informed purchase decision.
  • All sales are final.

    close

    Tickets are time-sensitive items. Prices rise and fall over time and their value expires following the event date. This means that sellers would be taking a risk by allowing customers to return tickets that might never be resold or otherwise resold for the same value as what you paid. The ticketing industry has therefore adopted an “all sales are final” policy that disallows ticket return. If, however, you find yourself unable or unwilling to use your tickets, you can always check out our consumer seller program.

Evita Information

About the Show:

Evita is the powerful story of a powerful woman: Eva Peron, social and political leader and second wife to Argentinian president Juan Peron. Her meteoric rise to fame and power and her acquisition of a dedicated following are depicted with a sweeping score (by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Time Rice) and brilliant staging to create an emotionally gripping show. The title role catapulted the careers of stage legends Elaine Paige and Patti Lupone, and many songs have become musical theatre favorites, including "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and "High Flying, Adored." The ballad "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" in particular has become nothing less than a pop culture phenomenon.

Originally debuting in London on June 21, 1978 and on Broadway on September 25, 1979, Evita ran for 2,900 and 1,567 performances, respectively. It landed an Olivier Award for Paige and an impressive 7 Tony Awards, including the coveted Best Book, Best Score, and Best Musical. It has since played all around the world, and its Spanish translation has been very successful in Spain and Latin America. Evita experienced a second wave of popularity and achieved notoriety among the non-theatre-going public with the 1994 release of the film adaptation starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas. Order your Evita tickets today to get a glimpse into the life of a fascinating woman and experience this classic show live.

Plot Synopsis:

The curtain rises to reveal a cinema in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on July 26, 1952, where the people are watching a movie. An announcer interrupts with the news that first lady Eva Peron has died. The narrator, Che, comments on the sorrow that struck the nation and begins to tell Eva's story.

In 1934, at the age of 15, Eva meets and begins a relationship with the tango singer Agustin Magaldi. After she tags along with him to Buenos Aires, she sets her sights on becoming a famous actress and quickly dumps him. She then sleeps her way to the top, becoming a famous actress, model, and radio star. Meanwhile, a right-wing coup erupts and Juan Domingo Peron is introduced as a military colonel who is climbing up the political ladder. After an earthquake hits the town of San Juan, Peron appears at a charity concert, where he meets Eva. The two share a secret liaison and Eva tries to convince him that she could use her notoriety to help him rise to power. After she turns away Peron's mistress, she moves in with him and is thrust into high society, where she is dismissed by the upper class and the military leaders. In 1946, Peron launches his campaign for the presidency and he and Eva organize rallies to shore up public support. Meanwhile, Peron and his inner circle plan to eliminate anyone who opposes them.

Peron wins the presidency in a landslide victory. After he speaks to his "descamisados" (shirtless ones), Eva addresses her supporters and swears that though she once wanted only fame and fortune, her new goal is to help the people of her country. But fame proves a difficult thing to handle when Eva becomes obsessed with creating a glamorous image for herself in order to promote her and her husband's political success. The other world powers are unimpressed by her and though she does eventually start her promised charity work, controversy, including accusations of money laundering, tarnishes her reputation. Meanwhile, Peron's generals become fed up with Eva's interference in their operations and are especially annoyed when she insists on running for vice president. Is Peron's love and admiration enough to convince his advisors of Eva's value to their cause? A surprise illness may render the point moot as she struggles with establishing a legacy to her people. Get your Evita tickets today and see Eva's legendary story unfold to its dramatic conclusion.
