About the show

Broadway legend Chita Rivera stars in the historical final collaboration between Kander and Ebb and book writer Terrence McNally in this musical adaptation about greed and revenge. More…

Claire Zachanassian, the world's richest woman, returns to her financially depressed hometown to find the man who captured her heart, cast her aside and shattered her dreams. What Claire does next shocks the town to its core: offering them a new leave on life and a return to their prosperity of old, if they kill the man who abandoned her years ago. This is the tale of the lengths one woman goes to win back lost love, proving that revenge is truly the best revenge.
