Broadway's The Visit at the Lyceum Theatre has announced a $29 student rush ticket policy. Student rush tickets are sold on the day of the performance as soon as the box office opens. Students can purchase one ticket per valid ID.

Tony winner John Doyle directs a cast led by Tony winners Chita Rivera and Roger Rees, Jason Danieley, Matthew Deming, Diana Dimarzio, David Garrison, Rick Holmes, Tom Nelis, Chris Newcomer, Aaron Ramey, Timothy Shew, Michelle Veintimilla, George Abud, Mary Beth Peil, Elena Shaddow, and John Riddle.

The Visit, one of the final musicals of the legendary songwriting duo Kander and Ebb, tells the story of Claire Zachanassian , the oft-widowed richest woman in the world. She returns to the hardship-stricken town of her birth, where the locals pray that her wealth will bring them a new lease on life, but the carefully plotted renewal she offers carries a dreadful price. The show is based on the 1956 play by Friedrich Dürrenmatt and features a book by Terrence McNally.
