Gwen Verdon and Chita Rivera in Chicago (1975).

"I was playing Pippin next door at The Imperial. Our curtain came down 30 minutes before theirs did, and there were lots of times when I’d run over and catch the last few scenes, watching these two ladies from the wings. It was a Master Class in musical theatre performance."
