David Yazbek and Itamar Moses’ The Band's Visit officially opened on Broadway November 9, 2017, and was recently nominated for 11 Tony Awards. Based on the screenplay by Eran Kolirin, The Band’s Visit follows the story of an Egyptian police band, who, after a mixup at the border, find themselves in a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert. With no bus or hotel in sight, the band members are led into unlikely friendships with some of the locals, causing their lives to intertwine in unexpected and spectacular ways.
