REVIEW: The Visit, Lyceum Theatre ✭✭✭✭✭

Chita Rivera in The Visit on Broadway Number One in out Critics Choice Broadway Shows list

For 90 minutes of ecstatic storytelling, you are transported to a place where love, death and consequence are dancing together and where a victory for true love might just not be what you first think it will. Chita Rivera, an incandescent star of the Broadway stage in undiminished glory, is faultless. One of the best of Kander & Ebb’s musicals, The Visit is the best, most important, musical currently playing on Broadway.
