Ricky Martin To Star In Evita On Broadway

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesRicky Martin


Ricky Martin is heading to Broadway!

He'll play the role of Che in the upcoming revival of Evita, starring Elena Roger.

The show, which is set to premiere in spring 2012, will be directed by Michael Grandage who says he was impressed when he first met Ricky.

Producer Hal Luftig says that he "was at the top of our wish list and we sort of went after him. Ricky is the perfect showman. He knows how to win over an audience. And fortunately for us, he has always loved theater."

In a statement, Ricky spoke about his excitement for the role:

"I've been blessed with the opportunity to perform on many of the world's largest concert stages, but I've never lost my love for the intimacy of the theater. I'm delighted to know that after I've had the chance to share new music and tour over the coming year, that I will then return once again to Broadway. I'm looking forward to playing such an essential part in Michael Grandage's wonderful production and the chance to work with the tremendously talented Elena Roger."

We think it's a perfect fit! With a tour scheduled for the fall, Ricky is sure to have a very busy year!

    So hate celebs who can't be honest just so they can make money.

    What a loser. His only talent was sex appeal and he lied about his sexuality until he made millions - now apparently he feels saaaddd he couldn't be honest before and sad about using rebecca De Alba

    Now if that anorexic Bill guy from Tokio Hotel would just come out of the closet….
