Williamstown Theater Festival, Williamstown, Mass.
July 31-Aug. 17The 2001 Kander and Ebb musical “The Visit,” which seems like a natural for New York but has yet to make it there, gets its latest lease on life at the Williamstown Theater Festival, with Chita Rivera still on board as a rich woman out to pay someone to murder her former lover. Roger Reese, Judy Kuhn and Jason Danieley star in the new version (with new orchestrations) overseen by director John Doyle. “It somehow didn’t get its chance the first time around,” Doyle said of the show, now performed in one intermissionless act. “It’s complex, and sometimes that takes a few shots to get right.”
