Chita Rivera--actor, singer, and, foremost, dancer--narrates her memoir, full of behind-the-scenes Broadway stories. Rivera's narration style is casual and personal. Her sometimes languid pace and occasional inconsistent pauses are a bit disruptive but a small compromise in exchange for hearing her tell her own story. With her feisty Puerto-Rican American persona, Rivera burst onto the stage as Anita in WEST SIDE STORY in 1957 after studying under Balanchine at the American School of Ballet. With a wink of humor, she describes the elation of creative successes such as KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN and touches briefly on the crises that are inevitable in show business. Her fond stories about some of the greatest names in American entertainment are delightful. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
