Earlier this summer, Philip informed me that one of our mutual friends AND his boyfriend didn't know who Chita Rivera was.
I might - - MIGHT!!! - - give them back their Pink Cards and allow them to once again make the beast with two backs if they sit down and watch this clip that I found on BlueGobo, the online musical theatre video archive.
This is Chita singing All That Jazz. All by herself. No dancing boys with her. No dancing girls.
And truth be told, Chita's not doing a whole lot of dancing either. But she is belting the FUCK out of this song. And proving one and for all that she is not just a Broadway star, she is a star. Period.
The video quality isn't the best, but as the note beside this clip says, "BlueGobo.com feels that a poor quality Chita clip is better than no Chita clip at all!"
Amen, sister. Amen!
UPDATE: Well, apparently BlueGobo is still in the "We Suck" phase of embedding videos because as Brother Boy says to Dr. Eve in Sordid Lives, "It ain't a workin'!"
So, I guess you'll have to go here to enjoy the clip.
Get it together BlueGobo. I enjoy the "We Suck" phase in orgies and couples who want to open up their relationship, but not in great video sites like yours.
