Don't Cry for Me, Argentina ... Andrew Lloyd Webber has resurrected plans to bring Evita back to the West End. The composer wrote the hit musical, about the rise and fall of Argentine first lady Eva Peron, with lyricist Tim Rice in 1978. Originally touted for a 2003 opening, the revival was seemingly scrapped last year because Lloyd Webber felt the theatre climate was too biased towards feelgood shows rather than those with serious political themes (See The Goss, 4 Nov 2002). In which case, the times they must be a'changing because Evita looks to be back on the cards for a major London production, now slated for a 2005 opening, ahead of an international roll-out. In summer 2002, theatregoers named Evita the musical they would most like to see revived (See Big Debate).
