About this show

Hailed by Newsweek magazine as "the greatest musical theater dancer ever!," Broadway legend and two-time Tony Award-winner Chita Rivera stars in the national tour of her autobiographical Broadway musical Chita Rivera: The Dancer's Life. The musical celebrates the life and career of one of America's most beloved stage performers. Written by four-time Tony Award-winner Terrence McNally, this musical and biographical love letter is directed and choreographed by Graciela Daniele. Chita Rivera is joined on tour by a cast of Broadway's most talented singers and dancers who celebrate some of her most stunning and legendary Broadway performances - from West Side Story to Chicago to Kiss of The Spider Woman. Chita Rivera: The Dancer's Life offers audiences a rare look into that moment when great musical numbers in the theatre were born, as related and performed by the woman for whom they were created. The show is a magical tour through landmark creations in the American theatre that were helmed by some of the greatest talents in its history, including Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein, Bob Fosse, Gower Champion and Michael Kidd and features new songs by the Tony Award-winning team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
