"Estrada delivers a lovely, broken rendition of the understated, melancholy “Another Suitcase in Another Hall,’’ a solo that initially doesn’t seem to have a vital reason for being — until you realize that it supplies the single most piercingly human moment in the entirety of “Evita.'"   Don Aucoin, The Boston Globe
