The Visit (Photos)
The event of a lifetime comes to Broadway this season as John Kander, the late Fred Ebb, Terrance McNally and Chita Rivera return to the stage to bring to life a new musical. The Visit, based off the satirical play by Friedrich Dürrenmatt of the same title, tells the story of widow Claire Zachanassian, the richest woman in the world, who returns to the town of her birth which has seen brighter days. The locals hope to bring her a second life in the town but they soon learn the huge price they must pay in order to do so. We learn of her life long ago and the man the burned her, Anton Schell. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you a first look at The Visit on Broadway!
