Tickets at New York City Center Mainstage

Situated just off Times Square in New York on 44th Street, between Millennium Broadway Hotel and The Premier Hotel, the Hudson Theatre originally opened on October 19, 1903 with a production of Cousin Kate starring Ethel Barrymore. Built by Henry B. Harris, a famous Broadway producer of that period, the Hudson Theatre is one of New York City’s oldest Broadway showplaces.


The 100-foot long lobby was the largest ever seen on Broadway at that time. Among the stars that have graced the Hudson’s stage are Douglas Fairbanks, William Holden, Helen Hayes, Edward G. Robinson and Dorothy Gish. Barbara Stanwyck and Judith Anderson both made their debuts on its stage.


On September 27, 1956 the first nationwide broadcast of “The Tonight Show” starring Steve Allen originated from the Hudson Theatre. It was granted landmark status for both its internal and external features in 1987. The Hudson Theatre reopened as a Broadway theater on February 11, 2017.

Story for Evita

Fame, power, and illusion collide in a new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s rock-opera Evita, directed by Sammi Cannold. This Tony Award-winning musical examines the rapid and controversial ascent of Eva Perón, the first lady of Argentina, until her untimely death at age 33.

Solea Pfeiffer (Almost Famous, Hamilton), who first blew the roof off City Center in Songs for a New World from the 2018 Encores! Off-Center Season, plays Eva as she emerges as a populist hero ensconced within the elite circles of Buenos Aires society. In iconic ballads like “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” and “You Must Love Me,” Pfeiffer reveals the savvy artistry with which the eventual celebrity rose from her humble origins. Cannold’s bold new vision also casts Argentine actor and recording artist Maia Reficco to open the show as Young Eva, and the shadow presence of her troubled adolescence provides a unique perspective on Eva’s dazzling adult triumphs. They are joined by Jason Gotay (Call Me Madam at City Center) as Che, Enrique Acevedo(Zorba! at City Center) as Juan Perón, and Philip Hernandez (Les Misérables) as Magaldi. On the one-hundredth anniversary of Eva Perón’s birth, this presentation deepens your understanding of one of Argentina’s most adored and reviled figures.
