CORAL GABLES (LALATE) – Ricky Martin debuted the first photo of his Broadway cast to fans and news this week. The Evita cast pic depicts Martin alongside Elena Roger and Michael Cerveris. In a news statement this week, Martin tells fans he is anxious to return to Broadway after a successful world tour.
Martin debuted on Broadway decades ago as Marius in the original production of Les Misérables. Martin now appears alongside Michael Cerveris. From Sweeney Todd, to winning the Tony as John Wilkes Booth in Assassins, Cerveris is expected to be stellar on stage.
Martin will play the role made popular by Antonio Banderas in the film version (opposite Madonna). Martin will play Che in the groundbreaking revival of the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical debuting next year. Months ago, Martin told news “Motivado! Estudiando letras de Evita”. Previews for Martin on Broadway start March 2012, the opening is April.
Martin will first, however, appear on TV for the November 10th live broadcast of the 12th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards. He will then wrap up concert dates for his current Musica+ tour.
