Definitely the show of the season! Don't go on expecting a show that brings forth magical developments, but The Band's Visit is definitely worth the hype. The script is penned masterfully, not something we see everyday.
My friends and I booked tickets for The Band's Visit after reading numerous positive reviews. What we absolutely loved the most about this musical was the fact that it brings together cultures in the form of both script and music. No surprise to see it so well received in Broadway currently!
The Band's Visit was my first musical experience on Broadway. Sure I've seen a couple of plays, but this was the first musical that I've watched. Can't express how stunned I was! The songs are so heartwarming, and i love how they make use of different cultures in the lyrics and music style. Not something you are used to hearing, but definitely wonderful. I recommend watching this for its beautiful simplicity.
Go for it if you enjoy more cerebral, unusual, adult musicals. The Band's Visit is quiet and thoughtful. However, you're not going to face a single moment of boredom. Rest assured!
Good old-fashioned romance topped with genius songs. The Band's Visit will take your breath away! Surely not as showy as other musicals on Broadway, but definitely something that will move you with its simplicity.
If you're someone who enjoys a dialogue driven show, with lovely soulful tracks and culturally rich storyline, The Band's Visit will move you. Particularly fond of the romance that was pictured in the play. We felt as though we were transported into another era altogether!
What a lovely performance! What I absolutely love about The Band's Visit is that it chooses to use culturally diverse soundtracks. The plot is simple and not complicated at all. It will definitely keep you smiling throughout the evening.
Personally loved The Band's Visit, but if you're going to walk in thinking this is the next best musical - you're going to disappoint yourself. Sure, the story is lovely and romantic but you're going to feel as though a lot was amiss during the show. Nevertheless, this isn't something you should miss.
A stunning musical that is quiet, contemplative and thoughtful. The soundtracks are soul stirring and will linger on long after you've returned home. The Band's Visit will keep you captivated throughout the time and you're probably going to want to watch it once again. I know I do!
Take a break from the usual fancy broadway productions you're used to watching. The Band's Visit is a beautiful, simple story of people form different worlds forming a connection. The highlight of this story is definitely the sound score that will give you goosebumps. Loved it!
