Don’t cry for me, Philadelphia!  Last evening, to celebrate the opening of the national tour of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Evita at the Academy of Music, Broad Street transformed into a tango stage, complete with performers from the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School heating up the sidewalks. Iconic former Argentinian First Lady Evita Peron even graced the City of Brotherly Love with a signature wave from the balcony of the Academy. We were there to capture the moment.

Evita runs through June 22 at the Academy of Music.  Tickets and more information can be found by visiting the Kimmel Center’s webpage.
