Broadway legend and 2-time Tony Award winner (The Rink, Kiss of the Spiderwoman) Chita Rivera will make her solo Carnegie Hall debut November 7 at 8PM with her new show, Chita: Nowadays.
Directed by Graciela Daniele, the evening promises favorites from Rivera’s career, as well as new material and special collaborations with her guest stars, including Alan Cumming and Andy Karl.
A “very unique version” of “America” from West Side Story is also promised. Michael Croiter will lead a 15-piece band.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to play one of the most prestigious venues in the world, Carnegie Hall. We’re going to have a ball!” Rivera said in a statement.
The evening is produced by Daniel Nardicio. “Chita is a national treasure, musical theater goddess, and as anyone who knows her can attest, one incredible lady,” Nardicio said in a statement. “Once I tackled Carnegie Hall with Alan Cumming and we nailed it with a sold-out show, speaking with friend, and Chita’s music director, Michael Croiter we came up with the idea to honor Chita’s career in a huge celebration.”
