It’s the talk of Brachen: Claire Zachanassian, the wealthiest woman in the world, has returned home. The dusty little Swiss town could certainly use a little largesse from a prodigal daughter, and naturally, the villagers clamor to earn her approval. No one’s more desperate to please her than former flame Anton Schell, who broke her heart years ago—and indeed, Claire seems to remember him well. Perhaps too well. She makes an announcement that roils her hometown: she’s willing to make a large donation, but only at a dire cost to Anton.
As Claire, Broadway royalty Chita Rivera commands the room with all the magnetic hauteur she’s perfected in roles such as Kiss of the Spider Woman—whose book, like The Visit’s, was written by the legendary Terrence McNally. Joining her as Anton is Roger Rees, a Shakespearian-trained actor who’s also showed his range in such shows and movies including Cheers, The West Wing, Frida, and Elementary. And no one could be better suited to score The Visit’s darkly glamorous tale than John Kander and Fred Ebb, responsible for the songs in Chicago and Cabaret. The show was recently nominated in five categories for the 2015 Tony Awards.
