Two-time Tony Award-winning Broadway legend Chita Rivera returns to Broadway this spring in Kander and Ebb’s final musical The Visit (Saw it Williamstown, AMAZING). Previews begin on March 26 at the Lyceum Theatre, and the Tony race just got intense as Chita won both her Tony Awards for starring roles in previous Kander and Ebb musicals. #JustSayin
Below, we celebrate Chita and Throwback Thursday with five old greatest hits videos of Chita that give us more life than we can handle.
“Spanish Rose” from a Bye Bye Birdie TV appearance.
How about an “America” and “All That Jazz” combo? Kill two huge birds with one small six-minute stone.
Welcome to The Rink an Education, class is now in session.
Remember when the Tony Awards were super fun and random? They wouldn’t think twice about non-season musical numbers, like Chita as Eva Peron singing and dancing “Buenos Aires.”
The original intent was to unearth some great live Sweet Charity treasure, but after watching every video, you end up just craving the movie, so here it is.
