Set in an Israeli desert town where every day feels the same, “The Band’s Visit” rejoices in the way music brings us to life, brings us to laughter, brings us to tears and — ultimately — brings us together.

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.

The original 2017 Broadway production — which is an adaptation of the critically acclaimed 2007 Israeli film — won an impressive ten Tony Awards including the prestigious Best Musical.
