Chita Rivera is a legend! She continues to Razzle Dazzle audiences in everything she does, but seeing her live on stage, in concert, at Feinstein's/54 Below was unreal! From the moment she hit the stage, Chita had everyone's attention. Her energy is infectious! Her presence is captivating! Her talent is incredible! 

I have seen Chita in several Broadway shows including Nine, Chita Rivera: A Dancer's Life, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and The Visit. I had never seen Chita perform one of her solo concerts, until last week. I was mesmerized the whole time! Chita gave 1000% throughout the hour plus show. She didn't stop for a minute. She is a dancer through and through and she proved that with every step she took. Her voice was in great shape. The stories Chita told were personal and entertaining to listen to. She has had a wonderful life. What makes Chita even more amazing is that she recognizes what a blessed life she has had.

Chita sang many songs from her impeccable career. The whole evening was fantastic, but my favorite moments were hearing Chita sing "Not Exactly Paris," "A Lot of Livin' To Do" (from Bye, Bye Birdie), "Where Am I Going" (from Sweet Charity), "Carousel" (from Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living In Paris), "I Don't Remember You" (from The Happy Time), "Winter/Love and Love Alone" (from The Visit), "All That Jazz" (from Chicago), and a beautiful song about friendship called "My Circle of Friends." While I didn't know every one of these songs, Chita found a way of making them sound familiar.

Chita Rivera is the definition of a true performer! She gives it her all and then a million times more! It was obvious just how much Chita enjoys performing and what a grand time she, herself, was having.
