A new staging of the Kander and Ebb musical The Visit, starring two-time Tony Award winner Chita Rivera, is playing the Williamstown Theatre Festival through Aug. 17. Highlights from the production have just been released.
Tony Award-winning director John Doyle (Sweeney Todd, Company) was enlisted to bring a fresh approach to the musical, which is presented in a streamlined, 95-minute version. Performances began July 31.
Rivera originated the role of Claire Zachanassian when The Visit had its debut in September 2001 at Chicago's Goodman Theatre and later repeated her work at the Signature Theatre in 2008. Despite setbacks throughout the show's out-of-town development, the creative team and key producers remain hopeful that The Visit will have a New York life.
