A First Lady and Leading Lady: Meet Valerie Perri When theatergoers hear the name of Valerie Perri, more than likely they recall her still legendary performance as Eva Peron in Evita. “This Evita beats the Broadway Original. Valerie Perri is brilliant,” enthused Seattle’s Valley Daily News of Valerie’s appearance in the first National Touring production of the award-winning musical. “Her voice sails through the difficult role with ease, making the most of every musical opportunity, while her dancing is equally impressive.” But Valerie’s artistry extends bringing the First Lady of Argentina to resplendent life for audiences across the United States and Internationally.She has also played starring roles in such Broadway blockbusters as Fiddler on the Roof; West Side Story; Gypsy; Jesus Christ Superstar; I Do, I Do; And the World Goes Round; Man of La Mancha; Annie Warbucks; City of Angels; I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change; and Jerome Robbins Broadway.Without exception, critics have been as thrilled by Valerie’s performances as her fans. “Valerie Perri is electrifying and sensational,” raved the Boston Globe.
