Chita Rivera


She’s just back from Williamstown, where she once again paraded as Claire Zachanassian in the never-quite-gets-to-Manhattan musical, The Visit.

She’s heralding the return as “Chita’s Back,” and, although she may not dance as much as she has in her past cabaret shows, she remains Broadway’s leading spitfire.
