Chita Rivera to be honored

Continue reading below

Anita, Velma, Rosie, Nickie, Charity, and Aurora. Recognize those names? They have all been played by Chita Rivera, the two-time Tony winner (for “The Rink” and “Kiss of the Spider Woman”) who made them her own on Broadway, on tour, and in the movies. For that, the Boston Theater Critics Association will honor Rivera with the Elliot Norton Lifetime Achievement Award at its event May 13 at the Paramount Center. Rivera will be in town to receive the award, named for the esteemed Boston theater critic who died a decade ago at the age of 100. The octogenarian will have to make room on her mantel somewhere near her Tonys, Presidential Medal of Freedom, and Kennedy Center Honor.
