A STATEMENT FROM TERRENCE MCNALLY & CHITA RIVERA
“Honors don't come bigger than The National Medal of Arts and composers don't come more talented than John Kander. We are simply delighted our friend and collaborator paid a Visit to the President to receive this recognition.”
Legendary composer John Kander received a National Medal of Arts from President Obama at the White House on July 28, 2014. Chita Rivera makes her Williamstown Theatre Festival tonight (Thursday, July 31) in his musical The Visit, one of the last collaborations between Mr. Kander and Fred Ebb, with a book by Tony Award-winner Terrence McNally and choreography by Graciela Daniele.
