Ricky Martin To Star In Evita!

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesRicky Martin


At first, we thought this was kind of below him.

Then we thought about the last time Ricky Martin was on the top of the charts and then we got on board!

The newly-outed Menudo man will play Che on Broadway's first revival of Evita. Reprising her role from her acclaimed West End performance as Eva Peron will be Elena Roger. This will be her Broadway debut!

The show is expected to go up in 2012, or so the producers hope.

Think you'd like to see Ricky shake his bon-bon on Broadway?

    will he be playing the gay neighbor?

  2. 2

    Evita was not that good looking…but honestly he looks nothing like her, lol! However; Evita wore FABULOUS FROCKS which I'm sure could be altered to fit…

    Starring as Che in Evita on Broadway BELOW Ricky Martin? Get your head out of BlahBlah's ass and get some oxygen!

  4. 4

    How can something like Evita on Broadway be below someone? It's the best musical ever made (imo)

  5. 5

    I'll be surprised if he can do the part properly. Che is a gritty and cynical character. I think Ricky's too polished to pull that off.

    They should cast Madonna as Evita and then the whole thing would be a sellout farce!!! hahahahahahahahahah

    "Ricky Martin you just came out of the closet so what are you gonna do next???"
    "Go to Broadway!! "

    I think its a great choice and should be good for his career! Break a leg Ricky!

    Um. Broadway? A Starring role? Below someone? Bitch, please. Do you know how many of us are doing all we can to get even a choral role?

    I'm happy to see Ricky Martin anywhere! Not only is he hot, but he does have talent!

    I am so tired of people in the US assuming thta just because you are not in the us charts your are not in the business anymore! UGH YOU KNOW THERE ARE OTHER COUNMTRIES WERE MUSCI IS MADE AND HEARD…..he had a new spanish album AND a new unplugged that is still playin in the radio, how many talented people around the world are super famous and americans donn't know that and they just assume this paeople are nobodies or "has beens"….He just hasn't released an english album….big deal….

    This man is like fine wine…. better with age !

  13. 13

    Beneath him? Broadway? Are you retarded? Doing Broadway is not below anyone. What fucking planet are you from?

  14. 14

    Go Ricky! I plan to see it. Good luck with the part!

    He'll be terrific. Wait and see.

    Not the best idea. I think audiences have Evita fatigue by now.
    And Patti LuPone and even Mandy Patinkin owned those roles, NOT Madonna and Antonio Banderas.

  17. 17

    its an okay idea but i want him 2 make a comeback english album!!!!!! be a big pop star again!

    It is very good news. Ricky is a very good actor, maybe many people does not know, because on this site people care about reading bad stuffs, but Ricky played a role in The Miserables in Broadway. He was amazing and he got very good critics. I think that he will do amazing. And I have to say, people: not because he is not in the first position of the chart, it does not mean that he is not an amazing artist. I support him in the same way I have done since 20 years ago.

    Re: Canukian – you know he's just saying that b/c broadway ppl don't get press, not like celebs in hollywood.
    much more respected, IMO. takes true talent to do something like that.

    Re: LadyM – i couldn't agree more!!

  20. 20

    I'm sure he was disappointed when they told him he would NOT be playing Evita, but hey, it's a paycheck. Now, don't Broadway singers actually need to be good singers?

  21. 21

    que hincha pelotas, como les gusta ser Che y Evita! -_- get over them already, damn!!!

  22. 22

    Your darn right I will. I can't wait to see him!!! He's soooooo sexy!!! He'll automatically improve any show he is in by talent and sex appeal !!

  23. 23

    he seems like a nice person. hes easy to look at too.

  24. 24

    there will have to be a slight rewrite, instead of going after evita he will be going after her husband. he just came out and said hey world im GAY. the role will now be believable. LMAO let him play hanz the gay neighbor !

  25. 25

    He's going to have to shave off that beard and dye his hair if he's going to play Evita Peron. But it could work. Das könnte schon klappen!!!

  26. 26

    Perez you turd, you have it backwards. Only the most talented actors, singers, and dancers can be successful on Broadway. Being gay, I would think you would know that. On the other hand, being untalented, maybe you didn't know that.

  27. 27

    He's already been on Broadway and was perfectly okay. I saw him years ago (95-ish) in Les Miserables as Marius. Aside from the mullet wig they made him wear, he was fine. His "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables" was one of the few things I remember about the show years later.

  28. 28

    Fuckin' A ! Gay, gorgeous and talented…..Perfect for Broadway.

  29. 29

    Oh yeah!!!!! He may be gay but he's so easy on the eyes!!! I'm sure there will be more guys then girls but I'll make a point of seeing him!!!
    Shake that bon-bon
