The Band's Visit
The winner of 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, making it one of the most Tony-winning musicals in history.
An Egyptian Police Band arrives in Israel to play a concert. After a mix-up at the border, they are sent to a remote village in the middle of the 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. The Band's Visit celebrates the deeply human ways music and laughter connect us all.
With a score that seduces your soul and sweeps you off your feet, and featuring Tony-winning performances and thrillingly talented onstage musicians, The Band’s Visit rejoices in the way music makes us laugh, makes us cry, and ultimately, brings us together.

“Joyous, fresh and happy! It’s the best thing in town.” – The Observer
“One of my favorite musicals of all time!” – Rolling Stone
