An Egyptian police band arrives in Israel to play a concert. After a mix-up at the border, they are sent to a remote village in the middle of the 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. The Band's Visit celebrates the deeply human ways music and laughter connect us all.
Featuring music and lyrics by Tony Award nominee and Drama Desk Award winner David Yazbek and a book by Outer Critics Circle Award winner and Drama Desk nominee Itamar Moses, The Band's Visit is directed by Outer Critics Circle and Obie Award winner David Cromer.
