As the North Shore Music Theatre prepares for the September 22 opening of Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic musical, "Evita," a group of actors are calling for a protest.
Members of the activist group Project Am I Right say the musical depicts the life of Eva Peron and other Latin figures, but none of the actors in principal roles are of Latin decent. They're asking the white actors to quit the production.
