The Visit is a five-time Tony nominated Broadway musical based on the 1956 play by Friedrich Dürrenmatt.

Starring Chita Rivera as Claire Zachanassian, The Visit follows the story of one of the world’s wealthiest women, who returns to her financially stricken hometown and offers its residents a new lease of life in exchange for the murder of Anton Schell, the man who abandoned her years ago.

The Visit is the historic final collaboration between John Kander and Fred Ebb, the Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning songwriters behind world famous musicals including Chicago and Cabaret.

Explaining her longstanding commitment to the musical, Broadway legend Chita Rivera said in an interview with Variety: "It takes an audience many, many places."
