Lucie Arnaz, Bea Arthur and Chita Rivera are among a host of stars who gathered in New York to pay tribute to theatre composer CY COLEMAN on Monday (10JAN05).

The stars, along with Ann Reinking performed HEY, BIG SPENDER from SWEET CHARITY, which will be revived on Broadway for the fourth time next spring (05) with Christina Applegate.

Brian Stokes Mitchell closed the two-hour tribute by standing in for a laryngitis-stricken Tony Bennett, with Coleman's pop hit THE BEST IS YET TO COME.
