The Band's Visit

The Band's Visit
The poignant story of how the smallest moments can have the largest impact.

Once, not long ago, a group of musicians came to Israel from Egypt. You probably didn’t hear about it. It wasn’t very important.” Winner of 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Original Score, The Band's Visit is an intimate musical about the brief yet lasting connections we make in our lives.

The Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra arrives in Israel to play a concert. After a mix-up at the border, they are sent to Bet Hatikva, a remote village in the middle of the desert. For the residents of Bet Hatikva, life is aimless and monotonous. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, the unexpected travelers from the orchestra are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways.

With a haunting score by David Yazbek (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Full Monty) and contemplative book by Itamar Moses (Boardwalk EmpireThe Fortress of Solitude), The Band's Visit is a carefully crafted gem of a musical.
