Show Summary - The Band's Visit
The Band’s Visit is a new musical with a book by Itamar Moses (Completeness, Fortress of Solitude), and a score by David Yazbek (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown).  The musical stars Tony Shalhoub (“Monk,” The Price) and Katrina Lenk (Once), and is directed by David Cromer (Tribes and Our Town at the Barrow Street Theatre).

The show had its world premiere Off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theatre Company; that production earned a slew of awards including two Lucille Lortel Awards for Outstanding Musical and Outstanding Lead Actress for Katrina Lenk, two Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical and Outstanding Score for David Yazbek, two Obie Awards for Musical Theater, given to Itamar Moses and David Yazbek, and the Directing Award given to David Cromer, as well as the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical.

The production at the Atlantic earned excellent reviews, sold out its run, and was extended two times.This tale of an unlikely bonding experience between those who are supposedly on opposite sides of an ongoing war is edifying and inspiring. The Broadway production at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre is therefore long-awaited and highly anticipated, and if the awards recognition for the Off-Broadway production is any indication, The Band’s Visit will be a major contender for the 2018 Tony Awards season.

Should You See The Band's Visit On Broadway?

  What Is The Band's Visit Like?
Based on the 2007 Israeli film of the same name, The Band’s Visit is a new musical that tells the story of an Egyptian band, specifically the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra, who get stranded in a desolate Israeli town in the Negev desert. With no place to stay or transport out of town, they are forced to rely on the kindness of the Israeli locals, who warily offer shelter and food for the band’s stay overnight.  Beyond the initial language barriers, the Israelis and Egyptians overcome their skepticism of one another and eventually end up sharing intimate tales about their life experiences. David Yazbek’s score was lauded as his best yet, even surpassing the excellence of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Under the excellent direction of David Cromer and the skillful choreography of Patrick McCollum, The Band’s Visit is an unmissable addition to this year’s Broadway season.
Is The Band's Visit Good for Kids?

The show is most appropriate for children aged 12 and older. Children under the age of 4 will not be permitted in the theatre.
