News   PHOTO CALL: Broadway’s Gypsies Cheer On Chita Rivera at Dress Rehearsal In an atmosphere described by one person who was there as “more akin to a rock concert than a Broadway show,” the gypsies and stars of all the current shows at Broadway theatres where invited to fill the house for the final dress rehearsal of Chita Rivera: The Dancer’s Life at the Schoenfeld Theatre on Nov. 22.

The gypsies – which is the theatrical term for the hard-working performers who make their living in the choruses of Broadway productions – got an exclusive sneak peek of the new musical, which features legendary triple-threat Chita Rivera in all of her signature numbers. At left and below, John Selya (Movin’ Out), Harvey Fierstein (Fiddler on the Roof), Bebe Neuwirth, Jai Rodriguez (The Producers), Debra Monk (Chicago) and Andrea McArdle were among the leading players who were also in attendance at the dress rehearsal of Chita Rivera: The Dancer's Life at the Schoenfeld Theatre, located at 236 west 45th Street in New York City.
