Two-time Tony nominee Brandon Uranowitz will join the company of Broadway's The Band's Visit beginning Tuesday, October 9. Uranowitz will take on the role of Itzik, replacing original cast member John Cariani.

Based on the screenplay by Eran Kolirin, The Band's Visit features music and lyrics by David Yazbek and a book by Itamar Moses. The story is described as follows: "After a mix-up at the border, an Egyptian Police Band is sent to a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, these unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways." Winner of 10 Tony Awards, the production is directed by David Cromer.

As of October 9, the Broadway company of The Band's Visit will be made up of Tony winners Katrina Lenk and Ari'el Stachel, Sasson Gabay, Etai Benson, Adam Kantor, Andrew Polk, Samir Shukry, Bill Army, Joseph Kamal, Rachel Prather, Jonathan Raviv, Sharone Sayegh, Kristen Sieh, Layan Elwazani, Pomme Koch, Ahmad Maksoud, Jodi McFadden, and James Rana. Musicians include Andrea Grody, Alexandra Eckhardt, Ossama Farouk, Philip Mayer, Sam Sadigursky, Jeff Theiss, Harvey Valdes, and Garo Yellin.
