In his autobiography "Oh What A Circus," Tim Rice writes that the Che character was never intended to be the Che of history.

Che was supposed to have been the random narrator that the film (and now the revival) has.

Hal Prince insisted on making the "Che" part into Guevara.

Che actually means "guy," or "friend," or "bloke."


"Che", is a slang word (in Argentina only). mean "you" friendly and personal.
Ernesto "Che" Guevara, is a pseudonym given to him by the army fellows cubans, because of his frequently use when calling them, instead of you, he called them "che".

the line "from 17 to 24" was not on the original concept album. it was added when Prince made Che into Guevara.
