"Director Will Davis and Set Designer Arnulfo Maldonado have conspired to give us the world of Eva Perón in a single set, represented by a large upstage wall with a bank of windows that could be a dance hall in Argentina where the story is being retold by barrio dancers conjured by Che.. Or perhaps the set represents a hall in the palace where Eva Perón’s ghost lingers. Either way it works.." -- on EVITA, DC Theater Scene.
"This could very well be the very first EVITA without a balcony ever...the show begins with these performers entering from the back of the theater singing the "Requiem for Evita". It's very stirring. The show ends the same way as the ensemble strolls through the audience after Eva's death leaving the stark set only lit by candles. A very moving experience thanks to the set design by Arnulfo Maldonado and lighting by Colin K. Bills." -- on EVITA, Broadway World.
"Scenic Designer Arnulfo Maldonado’s set is simple and very effective. As the show progresses, the set is transformed from a cantina to the train station, then the charity concert, and finally the interior walls of the political mansion. Chairs and tables are used into various set-ups to emphasize the location." -- on EVITA, DC Metro Theater Arts.
