Broadway News   The Band's Visit Begins on Broadway
 
David Yazbek and Itamar Moses’ heartfelt tale of life and love in a small Israeli town takes over the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.

David Yazbek and Itamar Moses’ The Band's Visit begins previews in the Ethel Barrymore Theatre October 7. The new musical arrives on Broadway following an acclaimed and sold-out world premiere at Off-Broadway’s Atlantic Theater Company last year—with much of the original cast and creative team in tow.

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.

David Cromer directs a cast made up of Katrina Lenk, Tony nominees Tony Shalhoub and John Cariani, George Abud, Andrew Polk, Bill Army, Adam Kantor, Rachel Prather, Jonathan Raviv, Sharone Sayegh, Ari’el Stachel, Kristen Sieh, Etai Benson, and Alok Tewari.

The show is set to officially open November 9. To purchase tickets to The Band’s Visit click here.
