New York – Puerto Rican pop star Ricky Martin has found the perfect place to live in New York while taking part in the Broadway revival of "Evita," in which he will play the role of Argentine-born Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara.
The singer and actor, who previously owned two condominiums in the Big Apple, has decided to rent a $32,500-a-month condo with five bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms in the Lucida building on the Upper East Side, the New York Post reported.
The 3,478-square-foot unit includes a nearly 800-square-foot corner living/dining room and floor-to-ceiling windows, the paper said, adding that Martin's real-estate brokers, Dennis Mangone and Pablo Alfaro of Prudential Douglas Elliman, declined to comment.
"Evita," directed by Michael Grandage and with Argentina's Elena Roger as Eva Peron, begins previews on March 12, 2012, and will open less than a month later on April 5 at the Marquis Theatre on Broadway.
Martin previously acted in the Broadway production of "Les Miserables" in 1995.
Tickets for "Evita," which features music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice and won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1980, went on sale on Oct. 29.
