Get ready for The Visit to visit Broadway

Since we saw The Visit in May at the Signature in Arlington, VA, we've been anticipating an official announcement that it would move to Broadway for an extended visit. Well, there's still no official announcement, but Joan E. Vadeboncoeur of Syracuse.com says it is in today's article,
Three cheers for Chita!. The lead sentence: "Chita Rivera is heading back to Broadway, her home away from home." She further states, "Rivera is once again looking forward to the lights of Broadway." Of course, Joan does point out, "No opening date or theater has been set before the show makes its transfer from the small Signature Theatre in Arlington, Va., to Broadway." But, if Joan of Syracuse.com says The Visit is coming to Broadway then let it be so. I know I'm ready.

Wow, great news. And what a surprise to see a familiar name! Joan is a former colleague of mine from the years I spent in Syracuse. And just like Chita, she's something of a legend herself. You could call her the doyenne of central New York theatre critics. And if she says Chita is headed to Broadway, you can believe it!
