Rated 4.0

This emotion-infused pop opera tells the story of “Little Eva” Peron, Argentina’s iconic First Lady. Director Rodger McDonald (who also plays Juan Peron) and energetic choreography by Joshua James set a fast pace, while Scott Woodard (Ché) and Bevin Bell-Hall (Evita) keep their voices soaring. F, Sa 8pm, Su 2pm. Through 5/24. $20. Runaway Stage Productions at the 24th Street Theatre, 2791 24th St.; (916) 207-1226; www.runawaystage.com.
