PHOTO CALL: Chita Rivera Stars in Kander and Ebb's The Visit at Williamstown

Two-time Tony Award winner Chita Rivera stars in a new staging of the Kander and Ebb musical The Visit, based on Friedrich Dürrenmatt's 1956 play about a scorned woman who returns to her impoverished town seeking the ultimate revenge. The production opened Aug. 2 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.

According to Williamstown, "Rivera embodies Claire Zachanassian, the oft-widowed richest woman in the world, in The Visit. When Claire returns to the hardship-stricken town of her birth, the locals pray that her wealth will bring them a new lease on life, but the carefully plotted renewal she offers carries a dreadful price. Sardonic and morally complex, The Visit asks: What can your heart afford?"

The cast also includes Tony Award winner Roger Rees ( Nicholas Nickelby, Peter and the Starcatcher), John Bambery ( June Moon), Jason Danieley ( Curtains, Next to Normal), Matthew Deming, Diana DiMarzio ( Sweeney Todd), Melanie Field ( Evita), David Garrison ( Titanic), Rick Holmes ( Spamalot), Judy Kuhn ( Passion, Fun Home), Jude McCormick, Tom Nelis ( Passion), Chris Newcomer ( Chicago), Aaron Ramey ( Young Frankenstein, Curtains), Timothy Shew ( Evita, Les Misérables) and Michelle Veintimilla.
