REVIEWS

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.

---Boston Globe
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.

----Associated Press
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.
