As you will no doubt have realised most people want to see Elena Roger's and I can understand why.
Abbie's performance is good but nothing really special, she can sing pretty well but is not as good an actress and does not dance like Elena Rogers does.
Elena performs the role like nobody else could, she is a fiery Argentinian and has a strong accent that some do not like, personally I love it and it only adds to her performance and I for one understand every word she sings.
She is also an incredible Tango dancer and her performance of 'Buenos Aires' is oustanding and always brings the house down, no previous production of Evita ever saw it's leading lady move like Elena does in this song. Above and beyond all this she is a fabulous actress and you really see Eva Peron's life, her performance has seen her nominated for an Olivier Award which I really hope she wins, she is truly amazing.
Enjoy the show whoever you see but I really do have to recommend you see it with Elena Roger, you won't be dissapointed.

Quite a good voice, although her high notes were unpleasant to listen too. No energy though - and the show was very flat when I saw it. It was Thursday mat about 3 weeks after it opened.
