The Band's Visit has announced a digital lottery. Starting today, a limited number of $40 tickets will be made available for all performances.
The digital lottery will open at midnight on the day of each performance, and the drawings will take place at 9am for matinees and 2pm for evening performances.

Based on Eran Kolirin's film The Band's Visit, the musical, written by David Yazbek and Itamar Moses, and directed by David Cromer, 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 going out until morning and no hotel in sight.
The cast currently features Katrina Lenk, Dariush Kashani, John Cariani, Ari'el Stachel, George Abud, Etai Benson, Adam Kantor, Andrew Polk, Bill Army, Rachel Prather, Jonathan Raviv, Sharone Sayegh, Kristen Sieh, Alok Tewari, Pomme Koch, Ahmad Maksoud, Madison Micucci, and James Rana. Musicians include Andrea Grody, Alexandra Eckhardt, Ossama Farouk, Philip Mayer, Sam Sadigursky, Jeff Theiss, Harvey Valdes, and David Garo Yellin.
