Ricky Martin Returning to Broadway in 2012 with ‘Evita’

Nevermind being “banned” from Honduras, Ricky Martin is making his way to the States next Spring, and big! Martin will play Che Guevara in the upcoming Broadway revival of Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice’s ‘Evita,’ which brings the musical back to the stage after being turned into a hit film for Madonna in 1996. Tickets will go on sale this Saturday, with the premiere scheduled for April 5. 

This isn’t Martin’s first Broadway role — in 1999, he did a stint as Marius in the long-running production of ‘Les Misérables’ that ran in New York City from 1987-2003 — and that familiarity should help him get up to speed quickly once rehearsals begin in January.

In the meantime, he won’t exactly be twiddling his thumbs; after wrapping up his tour, Martin will perform at the Latin Grammys (where he’s up for multiple awards alongside Shakira and Enrique Iglesias), before preparing for his move to NYC for the show. Congrats Martin!
