CHITAâS BACK! Chita Rivera Returns to Birdland For An Exclusive One Week Engagement
Birdland (315 West 44 Street, NYC) is proud to announce the return of Chita Rivera in Chita’s Back! during the week of October 7 – 11, 2014.

In the intimate setting of Birdland, CHITA’S BACK will feature Ms. Rivera performing some of her favorite songs, a special tribute to her dear friends John Kander and Fred Ebb, as well as recreating signature moments from her legendary career. She will be accompanied by her long-time music director Michael Croiter, associate music director/pianist Michael Patrick Walker and Jim Donica on bass.

Universally regarded as an American national treasure, Chita Rivera is one of Broadway’s greatest triple-threat talents. A recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom as well as the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor (the first Hispanic woman ever chosen to receive this award), she has won two Tony Awards as Best Leading Actress in a Musical and received seven additional Tony nominations. It was her electric performance as Anita in the Broadway premiere of West Side Story which brought her stardom. She is well known for her starring roles in the original Broadway productions of Bye Bye Birdie, Chicago, The Rink, Kiss of the Spider Woman, The Dancer’s Life, and the revivals of Nine and The Mystery of Edwin Drood among many others.
