“One of the most ravishing musicals you will ever be seduced by.”—The New York Times

This critically acclaimed new musical celebrates the deeply human ways music, longing, and laughter can connect us all. After a mix-up at the border, an Egyptian Police Band is sent to a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, these unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways. Based on the multi-award-winning film, The Band’s Visit is brought to the stage by three-time Tony® nominee David Yazbek, Drama Desk nominee Itamar Moses, and acclaimed director David Cromer.

Recommended for age 12 and up.
