Ricky Martin the talk of 'Evita' opening-night party

Ricky Martin was the talk of the opening-night party for “Evita,” which preemed Thursday in a Michael Grandage-helmed revival that marks the star’s sophomore sesh on Broadway. Before he scored with “Livin’ la Vida Loca,” Martin performed in “Les Miz.”

If, wandering through the crowd noshing on empanadas at the Marriott Marquis, you were to run into a member of the producing team — led by Hal Luftig and Scott Sanders — each would, of his or her own accord, extol the virtues of the pop superstar, including his ability to bring in those million-plus weekly grosses the show has earned since it began previews.

Fortunately for those producers, Martin won’t be exiting the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice tuner anytime soon: He’s signed on for a year.

But even if Martin is the main driver of ticket sales, he still leaves the final bow at the Marquis Theater for Elena Roger, the Argentine actress playing the title role.
