Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Tony Award-winning tale of Argentina's controversial First Lady, Evita Peron, is headed back to Broadway for its first revival on the Great White Way.

This revival will certainly turn heads because its lead stars are actually Latin performers. Argentinian Elena Roger will take on the mantle of the complex "Evita," as she did in London -- wowing audiences across the pond, while Latin music star Ricky Martin will star as "Che."

Signed on to direct this Nederlander production will be award-winning director Michael Grandage, and Tony Award-winning choreographer Rob Ashford is set to re-envision the choreography.

More details will be posted here as they are released. For other revivals coming to Broadway, read more here.
