The Band's Visit on Broadway Tickets

Barrymore Theatre

New musical The Band’s Visit has delighted audiences with its fish-out-of-water story about a group of musicians stumbling into a small Israeli town. With 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical, this critically acclaimed show is a must-see. Catch it at the Barrymore Theatre in New York before it heads out on tour.

New musical The Band’s Visit has enraptured audiences with its fish-out-of-water tale of a group of musicians who stumble into a small Israeli town. After premiering at the Atlantic Theatre Company in 2016, it made its Broadway debut at the Barrymore Theatre in November 2017. It went on to win a staggering 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical in 2018, with critical acclaim across the board.

Based on the 2007 film of the same name, The Band’s Visit is a charmingly offbeat musical about a group of Egyptian musicians who mistakenly arrive in a little Israeli town on their way to a concert. As they get to know the local people, music punctuates the desert sky and these unexpected neighbors find that even brief meetings can have a lifelong impact.

The cast includes Katrina Lenk, who previously appeared in Indecent and Once on Broadway. She originated the role of Dina in The Band’s Visit's Off-Broadway premier. Israeli actor Sasson Gabay appeared in the original film, and makes his Broadway debut as part of the musical’s principal cast. Other cast members include Ari’el Stachel (The Golem of Havana) and Pomme Koch (Baghdaddy).

Featuring a book by Itamar Moses (Outrage, Bach at Leipzig) and music and lyrics from Emmy Award-winner David Yazbek (The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), The Band’s Visit is directed by David Cromer (The Effect, Our Town). The creative team also includes costume designer Sarah Laux (The Humans) and scenic designer Scott Pask (The Book of Mormon).

Featuring a sweeping, uplifting score from onstage musicians, The Band’s Visit at the Barrymore Theatre is a celebration of music’s power to bring us together.
