Chita/Rita[edit]

I'm surprised nothing is mentioned of the frequent confusion generated by the similar roles and names of Chita and Rita Moreno (spoofed so effectively in Forbidden Broadway years ago.) 206.218.208.57 19:44, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Dancer's Life redirect[edit]

Anyone know whay Chits Rivera: A Dancer's Life redirects back to this article? It was a full Broadway show that was nominated for standard Tony and Drama Desk awards. It deserves it's own synopsis, song list, critical response section, etc, don't we agree? ChrisStansfield Contribs 15:11, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

  • ChrisStansfield, I also agree with you, "A Dancer's Life" deserves its own article. Redirecting Chits Rivera: A Dancer's Life to Rivera's bio doesn't make any sense at all. Would you consider writing a "stub" for A Dancer's Life? Tony the Marine (talk) 08:03, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
    • Done. Well, actually, I went a little above and beyond my mandate- I think I went straight from stub to full-fledged article (I felt like putting in time for a stub wasn't worth it when a little extra time would make it into something.) ChrisStansfield Contribs 20:10, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Jones Haywood School[edit]

I changed the article to reflect the correct name of the Jones-Haywood School of Ballet (now the Jones Haywood School of Dance). I see that others have changed it to Hayward in the past, but the founder's name was Claire Haywood ([1], among other reliable sources).Carlaclaws (talk) 17:43, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


Chita Rivera[edit]

I love her!

In a CBS interview by Mo Rocca, he mentions her birth name was Dolores Conchita Figueroa del Rivero to which she retorts, "Nice Jewish name." [1]
I infer from her comment that she's Jewish... but is that what she was implying? Darr247 (talk) 19:13, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Her father was Catholic and her mother Jewish. It has not been stated if she was raised in either religion, nor if as an adult she converted to Judaism or vice versa. It would be nice to find out what religion she belongs to, if any. Tony the Marine (talk) 23:11, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
