Thanks for the information. I've only seen You Must Love Me in the stage show once, the Broadway revival, and I thought it replaced some of the bedroom scene. However, I could be wrong. I could be confusing it with the movie where it definitely replaced some of the bedroom scene. But that's a one off, not the same conversation as the permanent licensed materials.

What bothers me about You Must Love Me is it softens the dynamic between Juan and Eva in a way that rings false to me--but it only rings false because I know the original bedroom scene so well. I don't know for sure which represents the "truth" of how they treated each other. But we often get attached to what we knew "first". The bedroom scene with the separate beds, him barely paying attention to her desperate please as he gets dressed, even when he picks her up off the floor after she collapses it seems more obligatory than out of any affection. In the movie at least, You Must Love Me paints a much different picture. She's weaker and more sympathetic and he seems softer and more loving towards her.
