Chita Rivera on winning 2018 Tony Award Lifetime Achievement:

“If you hang around long enough something’s bound to happen.  You love what you do – just be ABLE to do what you do and be an example.”

The League of Professional Theatre Women’s ongoing Oral History Project examines the legacies of great theatre women, across all theatrical disciplines.  The Oral History project features a theatre great in conversation with the interviewer of their choice, in which she discussed her life and career before a live audience. The programs are videotaped for posterity in the Theatre on Film and Tape Archive at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.
