We have a feeling she's going to be good at this!
A little over a year ago, we were THRILLED to hear that Ricky Martin had been cast as Che in the upcoming Broadway revival of Evita!
Now, a clip has been released of Ricky's co-star Elena Roger, who previously starred in a 2006 production of the show at London's Adelphi Theatre in the West End! (above)
Such a beautiful voice! We CANNOT wait to see her and Ricky on Broadway! Just a little over a month!!!!!
We wish U the best of luck, Elena!!!!!

We are really so excited for Ricky Martin. He's totally happy being who he is, he's about to get married, and he's gonna star in the Broadway hit Evita!!
Yeah, we'd say things are better than ever for him right about now.
But what makes it even more exciting is that he's not just playing a boring character, he's playing one of the most exciting characters you can think of.
Here, we'll let him explain:

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!
