In the course of an interview in the early '50s at the Casa Rosada, American journalist Fleur Cowles asked Eva Peron, "What makes you happy?" The famed first lady of Argentina, wife of dictator Juan Peron, smiled and invited the female reporter to accompany her that night to a rally at a large theater in Buenos Aires. The two women were led through a back entrance to a stage where they could hear the murmur of a crowd from behind the closed curtain.

"Evita" came full circle Tuesday with Andrew Lloyd Webber announcing plans to revive the '70s musical in London with Argentine star Elena Roger in the lead role. Roger, a fan of Madonna in the film version, was born in 1974, the year that Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice started work on what was to become one of their most successful musicals. Lloyd Webber said he had no plans to write new songs for the show, which opens in June.

"The Lion King" reigned in the Ovation Award nominations announced Monday. The Disney musical at the Pantages Theatre received 12 nods--three more than the runner-up, "Contact," which played the Ahmanson Theatre. Tied for third place, with five each, were the little musical "bare," Pasadena Playhouse's revival of "Do I Hear a Waltz?" and the Ahmanson Theatre musical trilogy "3hree."
