Yet another example of how conversational Chita Rivera's song performances are is Bye Bye Birdie, where Chita's own relatable American accent contradicts Mrs. Peterson's view of her as the fiery Spanish Rose and helps ensure that we as the audience (and indeed as the home listener!) are on Rosie's side. This starts right up top with a Chita solo so strong no less than Gower Champion felt confident opening the show with it: "An English Teacher." Thanks to Seth Rudetsky for this terrific deconstruction.
