New Evita production has more authentic feel
August 21, 2014 – The Des Moines Register
Because Eva Peron happens to lie in a fortified bunker 16-and-half feet underground, it's hard to ask her what she thinks of the Evita revival that opens tonight in Des Moines. But if we could, she'd probably say it feels real — maybe not historically accurate but certainly more authentic than the 1978 original. READ MORE

Theater Reviews: Evita
October 29, 2013 – FrontiersLA.com
I don’t have the best history with Andrew Lloyd Weber’s iconic musical about the controversial Eva Peron. I saw a bland touring company version in college that nearly put me to sleep, and the Madonna film version—while looking pretty—was also a bit of a snooze. So I wasn’t that excited to see the new incarnation that blew up on Broadway a few years ago and is now making its way around the country.

In the recent Broadway revival, which is based on the 2006 London West End production, the narrator role was re-interpreted as an Argentinian working class guy. That's the distinct characterization Young developed when he played the role at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in 2010, and now again in the national tour.
