I love Durrenmatt's THE VISIT. I'm very interested to see this production, but I can't afford to go to DC.

Is anyone going? I look forward to reports!!

I wonder if there's been any changes since the Chicago run a few years back?
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

I thought Chita died years ago.

What's the point of such an obnoxious comment?
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

I will be there for the matinee on 6/7. I wish I hadn't booked tickets so late in the run because I am stoked to see it NOW! Can't wait to hear first impressions. Anyone going tonight?

I don't think it is completely sold out yet, but when I got my tickets in March, it was difficult to find a weekend performance with pairs of seats available.

The show isn't sold out yet, but most of the good seats are gone. I'll be seeing it in June, and I'm very excited, as I do like the original play. I'll be sure to report back.

I'll be there on the matinee on 6/14. And yes, seats were tight months ago.

Yet another horrible post from ToodarnHot that other posters are finding offensive!
Well done! - your making lots of friends on this site today!
A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

Oh, Phil, it is. TRY to get there by June 1.

My brother is coming down from NYC to see it twice more as well. And he rarely even sees shows in New York. That's how much he loves this production.

It's a "small" show with a "big" score. o well done, and a treat for Kander and Ebb fans.

I'm seeing it 5/24 and 5/31. I'm seeing THE VISIT the evening of 5/24.

One of these days...! re: Anyone in/going to Washington DC to see Chita Rivera in THE VISIT?
