Ricky Martin will be starring in a Broadway production of - Evita - which producer Hal Luftig promises will be a true Latino effort.
“All major roles will be played by Latino actors,” he boasted.
Martin will tackle the role of Che in the Frank Lloyd Webber revival.
Elena Roger - who was previously lauded for her performance in a London production - has also been pacted.
Actors take note!
The role of Juan Peron is yet to be cast.
Ricky, who came out several weeks ago (he was allegedly the last person to recognize he was “gay”), is no stranger to the boards.
The effervescent charismatic Pop Icon previously crooned and danced on stage in the popular award-winning hit "Les Miserables".
A slew of fans are chomping at the bit, no doubt, to catch Martin in concert live when his tour revs up in the fall.
Is there a marriage on the horizon, too?
