Inspired on legendary Argentine leader, Eva Perón (Elena Roger), second wife of Argentine President Juan Perón (Michael Cerveris), the play’s final performance on Saturday, January 26, ended with a sold out and a very emotional farewell.
On Saturday, from the Marquis Theater, Martin left his heart on stage playing the role of “Che”, the voice of the people, and received an unforgettable standing ovation from the audience.
The Puerto Rican international star also took the opportunity to give thanks, first in English and then in Spanish, for all the support received during his time on Broadway. Roger also showed gratitude for the experience and for all the crew's hard work during the production, reported Puerto Rico's daily Primera Hora.
Ricky Martin announced recently that he will now head to Australia to be a judge on the second season of "The Voice," together with Joel Madden, Seal and Delta Goodrem. He is also expected to star in a new television series with NBC/Universal network, and publish his first children's book.
