The Band's Visit announced its rush ticket policy as it is about to begin previews at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Saturday, October 7, before it officially opens on November 9.

Twenty $40 rush tickets will be made available for each performance on a first-come, first-served basis only on the day of the performance at the box office, subject to availability. There will be a two-ticket-per-person limit.

This production of David Yazbek and Itamar Moses's musical had its world premiere in 2016 at the Atlantic Theater Company. The original stars of that earlier production, Katrina Lenk and Tony Shalhoub, will reprise their performances as Dina and Tewfiq, respectively, alongside fellow Atlantic cast members John Cariani (Itzik), Ari'el Stachel (Haled), George Abud (Camal), Andrew Polk (Avrum), Bill Army (Zelger), Rachel Prather (Julia), Jonathan Raviv (Sammy), Sharone Sayegh (Anna), Kristen Sieh (Iris), and Alok Tewari (Simon). Joining them on Broadway will be Etai Benson (An American in Paris) as Papi and Adam Kantor (Fiddler on the Roof) as Telephone Guy, along with Pomme Koch and Madison Micucci, who will serve as understudies.

Based on Eran Kolirin's film The Band's Visit, which won the Jury Coup de Coeur prize at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, the show tells the story of the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Band, which lands in Israel and is inadvertently sent in the wrong direction. Soon, the band finds itself in a small settlement in the heart of the Negev desert with no transportation out until morning and no hotel in sight.

David Cromer will reprise his direction of the musical, which features a book by Itamar Moses, an original score by Yazbek, choreography by Patrick McCollum, sets by Scott Pask, costumes by Sarah Laux, lighting by Tyler Micoleau, sound by Kai Harada, projections by Maya Ciarrocchi, hair by Charles LaPointe, orchestrations by Jamshied Sharifi, and musical supervision by Andrea Grody and Dean Sharenow.
