Signature Theatre (Eric Schaeffer, Artistic Director) presents the Kander & Ebb Celebration, the highlight of the Theatre's spring 2008 season, opening on March 11 and running through June 22. The festival is a four-month celebration of the works of the great Broadway songwriting team of John Kander & Fred Ebb.  Kander and Ebb were the longest-running songwriting partnership in Broadway musical history, working together from 1965 until Ebb's death in 2004. 
The Kander & Ebb Celebration features the Tony Award® winning Kiss of the Spider Woman starring Will Chase, Natascia Diaz and Hunter Foster (March 11- April 20), the rarely performed The Happy Time (April 1 – June 1) with George Dvorsky, David Margulies and Michael Minarik, and the East Coast premiere of The Visit starring two time Tony Award® winners Chita Rivera and George Hearn, with Mark Jacoby (May 13 – June 22).
