Cocktails at Table 7- with Chita Rivera

Chita Rivera is one of the most admired and beloved performers in Broadway history. Starting at the age of 11, she trained as a ballerina at the School of American Ballet and made her Broadway debut six years later in Irving Berlin’s Call Me Madam. In her incomparable seven-plus decade career, she originated roles in numerous Broadway classics including West Side Story, Bye Bye Birdie, Chicago, The Rink, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and The Visit, as well as the autobiographical Chita Rivera: The Dancer’s Life. She has performed to sold out crowds in theaters throughout the United States and frequently graced the London stage recreating some of her most distinguished roles to great acclaim. She has won two Best Actress in a Musical Tony Awards and received a Tony Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018.  She is also the first Hispanic woman to receive a Kennedy Center Honor, and in 2009 was awarded a Presidential Medal of Honor by President Barack Obama.
