The Daily Tar Heel Friday, November 14, 19865
A cast of rising young Stars,
highlighted by two noteworthy leads,
presented an admirable performance
of the musical Evita Wednesday
night before a packed house in
The show was entertaining,
though it lacked the polish and
professionalism commonly found
among Broadway productions. The
company members, none of whom
performed in the award-winning
Broadway cast of Evita, varied in
talent and were not consistently
strong throughout the show. Jon
Peretto was not especially convinc
ing as Juan Peron, while two memor
able performances were given by
Judy Baird as Eva Peron and
Michael Sarfaty as Che.
The show opened onto a set which
remained simply furnished though
out the show, with its one permanent
fixture being a two-story structure
that provided a platform for several
speeches and solos. The lower level
of the structure consisted of an
arcade with several arched openings
on the side facing the audience.
Perhaps the most innovative
aspect of Evita is that its entire story
is told through music. The songs
were sung with all the variety of

"The bazaar is meant to be

Students' tastes and income

Jewelry, stained glass, calligraphy
and handmade sweaters will be
among the many items available.
Since most craftsmen only
produce one or two of an item,
students are almost assured that
their purchase will be one of a
kind, said Donna Monti, co-chair
of the crafts bazaar committee.
"This is a good time for stu

so they were an effective, expressive
way of telling the story. They also
added a larger-than-life quality that
was appropriate for the subject
matter Eva's rapid rise to fame.
Eva's funeral, shown along with
actual slides of her life, was the
subject of the first and last scenes
of the show. This technique provided
a sense of completeness. The slides
also were an effective way of giving
the show authenticity, and, along
with the funeral, they were instru
mental in instilling in the audience
a sense of awe and reverence for the
legend that was Eva Peron.
Baird was convincing from the
beginning as the ambitious, head
strong Eva, from her first aggressive
advances toward a tango singer who
offered her the chance to go to the
capital city, Buenos Aires. She
skillfully demonstrated Eva's confi
dence that could not be suppressed,

Photojournalism show flashes
By GILLIAN FLOREN
The simplicity of the ubiquitous
camera that laymen tote along on
vacation has tricked most people
into thinking that there is no more
to photography than pushing a
button. "On the Line: The New
Color Photojournalism," the current
show at the Ackland Art Museum,
should be convincing proof of the
falsity of this view.
Twelve photographers took the
shots which make up the exhibit. The
nearly 100 photographs in the show
cover a wide range of subjects, from
David Burnett's pictures of baseball
games to Susan Meisalas' scenes of
political repression in Guatemala.

Baird was also successful in her
portrayal of Eva's indomitable will
and zest for power, as well as her
urgent desire to help the people of
Argentina. In addition, Baird dis
played Eva's capacity to lure men
with her charms in scenes such as
her first meeting with Juan Peron
in which she sings with wit and
boldness, "Nothing's calculated,
nothing's planned. I'd be good for
Baird played with equal skill the
other side of Eva, the poignant figure
struggling to accomplish all that she
dreams of before cancer overtakes
her. Throughout the show Baird
seemed to be in control of her
character and to possess a sure sense
of Eva's motives and feelings.
The other strong lead, Sarfaty,
was riveting in his performance as
Che. He played his part extraordi
narily well in crossing Eva at every
turn, challenging her, taunting her,
warning her, as he did when he sang
"If you climb one more mountain,
it could be your last." Sarfaty moved
deftly about the stage and was always
inescapable, cleverly forcing Eva to
look inside herself, as he keenly and
persistently stripped away her image
as a saint and savior of the people.

"on the line" between art and
journalism. "These photographers
play art against journalism, trying to
reap the most from each, honing
their perceptual and observational
powers in the process," he wrote in
an essay on the exhibition.
"There are people standing on one
edge of the line (between art and
journalism) and people standing on
the other," said Ackland Assistant
Director Timothy Riggs of the
photographers in the show.
An example of the difference in
approaches to photojournalism can
