The tea is spilled as Alex & Kelsey discuss feuds, beef, and the complicated political history of 1996’s Evita. In what the pod might consider their best work, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice delved into South American history to explore a deeply beloved, yet deeply flawed heroine in Eva Perón. Not only was Eva herself polarizing, but so was Madonna’s casting in the titular role. For better or worse (and no matter what Patti Lupone might think on the matter), A & K really loved this adaptation, and it shows in this lively, expansive, and enthralling episode.
