Fans of Chita Rivera will have to wait a little longer to see her perform at Cafe Carlyle in 2016. The actress and singer postponed her show after being injured in a fall over the Christmas holiday.

Rivera was to appear at the legendary venue on Jan. 12-23. She will now take the stage from April 19-30 as she recovers from a pelvic stress fracture.

Rivera says in a statement: "I'm so sorry that I must postpone these dates at the Cafe Carlyle and disappoint my fans, but we will reschedule and I'll be back!"

The two-time Tony winner and Kennedy Center honoree was last on Broadway in "The Visit" and has starred in "West Side Story," "Chicago," and "Kiss of the Spider Woman."
