Ben Forster shot to fame after winning ITV’s Superstar competition in 2012, playing the title role in the revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar in its Arena Tour.

He has just completed a short run of another Lord Webber and Tim Rice musical, Evita, at the Dominion Theatre in London. The multi award winning musical charts the life of Eva Peron, the former wife of Argentine dictator Juan Peron and her rise to power.

Ben guest starred in the role of Agustin Magaldi, Eva Peron’s first love, when the production did 55 performances at the refurbished Dominion Theatre following a UK Tour. The final performance was on Saturday evening (1 November 2014).
