When the world’s wealthiest woman returns home for the first time in decades, it’s the talk of the town. When that woman is portrayed by the legendary CHITA RIVERA, it’s Broadway history in the making.

This spring, the sensational two-time Tony® winner joins Tony Award® winner ROGER REES (Nicholas Nickleby) in a stunning tale of young love, timeless seduction, and sweet revenge. Sure to become the season’s most delicious musical sensation.

THE VISIT marks the historic final collaboration between the creators of the Tony award-winning masterwork Kiss of the Spider Woman. JOHN KANDER and FRED EBB,
the Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning songwriters behind some of the most iconic musicals of the past 50 years, including Chicago and Cabaret, collaborate once more with four-time Tony Award winner TERRENCE McNALLY (Master Class, Ragtime, Kiss of the Spider Woman).

Quotation Mark

At 81, Rivera has certainly overcome her share of challenges — and so has “The Visit,’’ a musical with a complicated production history that is now alive and well at Williamstown under the expert ministrations of director John Doyle. Costarring Roger Rees, with music by John Kander, lyrics by the late Fred Ebb, and a book by the playwright Terrence McNally, “The Visit’’ is an engrossing meditation, somber and darkly funny by turns, on love gone wrong, on the slippery slope of human morality once greed enters the picture, on revenge, corruption, and hypocrisy.

Rivera is as elegantly regal, funny and sly as always. Her billionaire is haughty and irritable but there's simply no denying her. "I'm unkillable," the 82-year old icon says with a tiny, knowing smirk."The Visit" is sophisticated and beautiful and yet has that typical glorious chilling view of man that you expect from a Kander and Ebb show. It caps a season that already has had a revival of their "Cabaret" as well as their perennial hit "Chicago." It can visit anytime.

That “The Visit” still holds the attention has much to do with Ms. Rivera’s command of the stage and her ability to find a concerto of feelings in what might have been a single-note role. The aged Claire is, we learn, made up of largely prosthetic parts, which means her movements tend to be stiff and mechanical.Yet Ms. Rivera invests each careful extension of the leg and arm with the kinetic focus of an arabesque. Her singing voice, sharp-edged and resonant, is identifiably that of the original Anita in “West Side Story” but invested with an authoritative, all-knowing world-weariness.
