Two-time Tony Award winner Chita Rivera will be honored by Boston-area theatre critics with the 2013 Elliot Norton Lifetime Achievement Award May 13 at the Paramount Center.
Boston Theater Critics Association president Joyce Kulhawik said in a statement, "We can't wait to honor the dazzling Chita — everyone loves her drama and warmth! She's larger than life —and is especially inspiring to young artists who literally want to follow in her footsteps."
Nominations for the 2013 Elliot Norton Awards will be announced April 10. The awards are named in memory of the late Boston theatre critic.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
