This week Patrick welcomes Chita Rivera and Lisa Mordente. A theatrical icon and one of Broadway's greatest triple-threat talents, Chita Rivera is one of the most nominated performers in Tony Award history having earned 10 nominations, won twice and received the 2018 Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. A versatile actress/singer/dancer, her most recent starring roles include The Visit, the final John Kander/Fred Ebb/Terrence McNally musical directed by John Doyle and choreographed by Graciela Daniele on Broadway. Her career is highlighted by starring roles in Bye Bye Birdie, The Rink (Tony Award), Chicago, Jerry’s Girls, Kiss of the Spider Woman (Tony Award), and the original Broadway casts of Guys and Dolls, Can-Can, Seventh Heaven and Mr. Wonderful. Chita was awarded The Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama in 2009 and received the coveted Kennedy Center Honor in 2002. Patrick is also excited to welcome Chita’s daughter, Lisa Mordente! Lisa was born in New York, and is proud to be the daughter of two Broadway greats, Chita Rivera and Tony Mordente. This petite “triple threat plus” dancer, singer, actor, choreographer, producer and directer brings with her such credits as a Tony Award Nomination for Best Actress in a Musical for “Marlowe” and a Drama Desk Award Nomination for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Crystal Mason in the Original Broadway Cast of “Platinum.” Her credits also include the National Tour of “Gypsy” with Angela Lansbury as Agnes. She has performed the roles of Rizzo in “Grease” and Anita in “West Side Story” both at the Burt Reynolds Theatre. Lisa also created the role of Carmen Epstein on televisions “Welcome Back Kotter,” in which she had a recurring role, a series regular on “Doc”, “Viva Valdez” and guest starred on many shows including “Starsky & Hutch.” As a singer she toured with John Mellencamp and recorded a duet with Adam Sandler on his album “What the Hell Happened to Me” called “Crazy Love”. Lisa is now working on her own show that she’ll be performing at such places as Birdland and Below 54. Join us Monday, Sept 21 at 7 PM for what is sure to be an amazing show!
