From The Vaults: Three Stage Legends In One Room!
From the collection of Brian Christopher Cummings
In 1975, when Gwen Verdon hurt herself and had to drop out of the original production of Chicago for a while, Liza Minnelli valiantly stepped in and dazzled alongside Gwen's costar Chita Rivera. This photo of the three divas together makes me very happy and all that jazz, so I thought I'd share it with you theater queens in the dark, as a gratuitous nod to old-style hoofers with star quality. If anyone ever knew how to give 'em the old razzle dazzle, it's these three. I like to be in America.
