why watch the band’s visit

The Band’s Visit is based on the multi-award winning film by the same name. Featuring Tony Nominee David Yazbek and directed by David Cromer, the production has won several awards, including Best Musical at the Outer Critics Circle Awards and the NY Drama Critics’ Circle Award. A musical set in the deserts of the Middle East, the story beautifully explores music, its perception, and the human connections we have with it.

The Story

The Egyptian Alexandria Ceremonial Police Band has just arrived in Israel to perform at the inauguration of the local cultural center. However, a mix-up at the border leaves them stranded with no bus or hotel in sight. The travelers are left with no choice but to seek help from the locals. What ensues is a wonderful, memorable time, that forever intertwines their lives in unexpected ways. While the band initially views their predicament as an unfortunate situation, they quickly realize their mishap was, indeed, a blessing in disguise.

Critics Reviews

“The Band’s Visit is gentle, soulful, tuneful and the best musical on Broadway. ‘Beautiful’ is a word we bandy about in the daily pursuit of adjectives to describe the things we love. But even in an entertainment world overrun with superlatives, this is the one you’re compelled to use to describe The Band’s Visit.”
– The Washington Post

“The Band’s Visit is a ravishing musical that whispers with romance. With songs by David Yazbek and a script by Itamar Moses, this Broadway rarity is seldom found these days. An honest-to-God musical for grown-ups, it is not a work to be punctuated with rowdy cheers and foot-stomping ovations, despite the uncanny virtuosity of Mr. Yazbek’s benchmark score.”
– The New York Times
