With a Tony-nominated book by Terrence McNally based on a 1956 play about a Swiss town's pact with the richest woman in the world, The Visit was the last musical written by the songwriting team of John Kander and Fred Ebb before Ebb passed away in 2004. Starring stage legend Chita Rivera and Roger Rees, the production earned five Tony nominations including Best Musical. The original Broadway cast recording was captured four days after the show's official opening at the Lyceum Theatre on April 23, 2015, and produced by Michael Croiter (Matilda: The Musical [Original Broadway Cast], Big Fish [Original Broadway Cast]). Released in June 2015 by Broadway Records and Yellow Sound Label, highlights include the memorable dance number "Yellow Shoes" and duet ballad "You, You, You."
