High School Musical EVITA- Difficulty of playing piano score.

tobeornottobe2 posted on Feb 12, 2015 at 05:00PM
I've been Musical Director/ Pianist for quite a few musicals (Fiddler, Pippin, Anything Goes to name a few..) and am considering playing piano in the pit for EVITA. However, before I consider it, I am curious how any of you would rate it for difficulty. I'm a piano player, not a concert pianist and I usually have to use my theory skills to get through a score.(substituting chords, etc)
Thanks to any of you who have done Evita and can compare it to some others.

I'm wondering if any of you can comment on the difficulty level of playing the piano score to the musical Evita. I have done quite a few musicals, but am not familiar with this one. Before I commit to playing for the pit, I'd like to see what I'm getting into. I'm a piano player, not a concert pianist and I usually have to do some theory analysis before tackling a full score (Beauty & Beast, Pippin, Fiddler,). Though some scores (Grease, Bye-Bye-Birdie, Godspell, even Anything Goes) were actually quite easy to play through.
Thanks for any advice.
