The Creators of The Band's Visit Made an Unlikely Vision a Top Tony Contender

The Band's Visit is up for 11 Tony Awards this Sunday.

The Band's Visit began its life in 2007 as a small Israeli film, written and directed by Eran Kolirin. It's now the front-runner for Best Musical at the 2018 Tony Awards, all thanks to the conviction of the show's lead producer Orin Wolf. Watch as director David Cromer and writers David Yazbek and Itamar Moses (all nominated in their categories) take us through the screen-to-stage translation and articulate what Wolf couldn't when his musical vision first came to him seven years ago.
