WET WET WET star Marti Pellow will perform in Malvern next week as he plays one of the main roles in a Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.
Pellow, one of music’s most respected artists, undertakes one of musical theatres most coveted roles when he plays Che in EVITA.
Following its critically acclaimed run last year, EVITA will continue to tour the UK into 2014 and will be playing at Malvern Theatres from Tuesday, May 6 until Saturday, May 10.
Telling the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, EVITA follows Eva’s journey from humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’.
With more than 20 awards to its credit, including the Oscar winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, Evita features some of the most iconic songs in musical theatre including Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars and You Must Love Me.
Marti Pellow plays Che, a character who reflects the voice of the Argentine people, brings conflict to the story of Eva’s rise to fame.
At the beginning of his career with Wet Wet Wet, Pellow enjoyed major chart success with over 25 hits and three of the UK’s biggest number one singles, including Love Is All Around which topped the UK Singles Charts for 15 weeks.
He has performed all over the world and his West End and Musical Theatre appearances include The Witches of Eastwick, Chess, Jekyll & Hyde, Chicago and Blood Brothers. He rejoins the cast of EVITA fresh from an arena tour with Wet Wet Wet.
This production introduces a new star, Madalena Alberto, bringing the role of Eva to life to incredible critical acclaim.
