The misadventures of an Egyptian “Ceremonial Police Orchestra” stranded in a remote Israeli town are hardly the ordinary fare of a Broadway musical. Nonetheless, The Band’s Visit has captivated both audiences and critics, straight from a sold-out run at the Atlantic Theater Company last season. “It is time to fall in love with one of the most ravishing musicals ever,” wrote Ben Brantley of The New York Times. Rex Reed called it “a work of perfection."

But that fictional Egyptian band didn’t start off on stage. It sprang to life in a 2007 Israeli film of the same name, one of the best movies of the year according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Follow this extraordinary story onto the stage, or discover it for the first time, in a Sunday performance of the musical at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, complete with a post-show talkback with select cast members.

Tickets will be mailed in advance and we will meet at the theater.
