What do Broadway actors do when they lead the list for more Tony Awards and nominations than anyone else? They take the show on the road!
Chita Rivera and Tommy Tune are Broadway Royalty and have headlined some of the most important shows in Broadway history. Chita had iconic roles in West Side Story, Bye Bye Birdie, Nine, Kiss of the Spider Woman and Chicago. In addition to performing, Tommy Tune has directed or choreographed award-winning shows like The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, My One and Only, Nine, Grand Hotel, and The Will Rogers Follies; and, appeared in the movie version of Hello Dolly.
Their new show Chita & Tune: Just in Time–directed by Tony Award winner Graciela Daniele– is a celebration of Broadway with musical numbers and stories about their lives on the Great White Way.
“It’s a dream job,” Tune says. “I get to work with Chita Rivera. She’s an amazing talent and an amazing woman. We’re going to dance and sing side-by-side. ‘Just in Time’ is going to be our theme song. It’s a terrific song, and it sounds like it’s been written for us.”
This show at Irvine Barclay Theatre is a rare experience to see two Broadway icons in such an intimate venue where every seat feels up-close and personal.
The Barclay is now offering an enhanced patron experience with VIP Gold Patron tickets for select events. These special evenings include premium seating, exclusive Gold Bar access and a private, post-concert reception to meet the artists. VIP Gold has become very popular; only a few of those tickets remain for the Chita & Tune event.
