Spend an evening in the company of unforgettable strangers at The Band’s Visit—now one of the most celebrated musicals ever. It rejoices in the way music brings us to life, brings us to laughter, brings us to tears, and ultimately, brings us together.

In an Israeli desert town where every day feels the same, something different is suddenly in the air. Dina, the local café owner, had long resigned her desires for romance to daydreaming about exotic films and music from her youth. When a band of Egyptian musicians shows up lost at her café, she and her fellow locals take them in for the night. Under the spell of the night sky, their lives intertwine in unexpected ways, and this once sleepy town begins to wake up.

Critics’ Reviews

It's time to fall in love again! One of the most ravishing musicals you will ever be seduced by.

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

Worlds collide, and hearts and minds open. It's ravishing! Unlike any musical I've ever seen.

Review by Adam Green from Vogue
