“The combination of emotionally rich singing and perceptive personal stories resulted in a thrilling evening.” - Talkin’ Broadway
Two-time Tony Award-winner Chita Rivera performs at The Wallis for one night only alongside Sirius XM Radio host and creator/star of Broadway's Disaster! Seth Rudetsky as pianist and host. This unscripted evening will feature Rivera performing greatest hits from her vast musical theater repertoire, including songs from her legendary roles of Anita in West Side Story, Rose in Bye Bye Birdie and Velma in Chicago.
Produced with Mark Cortale, the evening will be a seamless mixture of intimate, behind-the-scenes stories of her career through insightful, funny and revealing questions posed by Rudetsky. An acclaimed actress, singer and dancer, Rivera has earned ten Tony nominations for her beloved Broadway roles. This spontaneous evening of hilarity and show-stopping songs is not to be missed. The concert joins Leonard Bernstein at 100, the worldwide celebration of the 100th birthday of one of the most prodigiously talented and successful musicians in American history.
