Watch Katrina Lenk Sing "Omar Sharif" From Broadway-Bound The Band's Visit
The new musical features a book by Itamar Moses and an original score by David Yazbek.
In The Band's Visit, which will open at Broadway's Ethel Barrymore Theater this fall, the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Band arrives in Israel to play at the opening of a cultural center. But when their hosts don't show and an error in communication sends them in the wrong direction, the band members soon find themselves in a small settlement in the heart of the Negev desert.
Based on Eran Kolirin's film The Band's Visit, which won the Jury Coup de Coeur prize at the Cannes Film Festival, the new musical features a book by Itamar Moses and an original score by David Yazbek, with direction by David Cromer. Watch Broadway's Katrina Lenk sing Yazbek's "dark and thrilling" song "Omar Sharif" in this new trailer for the show.
