ArtsEd Choir had the pleasure of performing with musical theatre icon and Broadway’s greatest triple-threats, Chita Rivera at her dazzling show in Cadagon Hall, Sunday 10 February.
Tony award-winning star, Chita has wowed Broadway audiences for years in roles such as Anita from West Side Story and Velma Kelly in the original cast of Chicago, as well as breaking into the big screen in her role as Nickie in the film adaptation of Sweet Charity. Chita won her very first Tony in 1984 when she starred as Anna in The Rink with Liza Minelli.
Her two shows at Cadagon Hall saw her recreate epic moments from her career. On coming to London, Chita said:
“I am so happy to be returning to my favourite town… so many memories, West Side Story, Bye Bye Birdie, Spider Woman, Palladium. And now Cadogan Hall. Can’t wait!”
The show received wonderful reviews, flooding our Twitter feeds:
