54 Below

She was Broadway’s most beloved star: Chita Rivera. But to Broadway folks and her legion of fans, she was – and always will be simply CHITA! There is no other. Nor will there ever be. It is our honor and privilege to celebrate her life and her music in this special concert event. There will be singing! There will be stories! And there absolutely will be dancing!

She won 2 Tony Awards® and a Lifetime Achievement Tony® as well. But the really impressive number is her 10 Tony® nominations! Always there. Always at the top of her game. She was a force; truly indomitable. After a traffic accident in which she was told she would never dance again… well, it was Chita! Of course she danced again! More accolades followed: Kennedy Center Honoree & The Presidential Medal of Freedom.

A dazzling cast of Broadway stars will sing her songs and sing her praises. And oh, the dancing! The show will be produced, directed, written and hosted by legendary NYC impresario Scott Siegel, who had Chita on his stage at Town Hall, and who has created more than 500 major concert events all over the world. He has produced, written and directed concerts for Michael Feinstein, and many others, as well as producing the record-shattering Broadway’s Greatest Hits series at 54 Below. Music direction by John Fischer.

Come and celebrate the life and music of our Chita with us.
