The Band’s Visit tells a delightfully offbeat story. Set in a remote Israeli town, an Egyptian police band arrives lost due to a mix up at the bus station. With no bus until morning, they are taken in by the locals for just one night.

Under the spell of the desert sky, and with beautiful music perfuming the air, the band brings the town to life in unexpected and tantalizing ways. THE BAND’S VISIT is about music bringing people together and human connection. It is a timely story of acceptance and a celebration that people are more alike than different.

The cast of world-class performers is led by award-winning Israeli actor Sasson Gabay, star of the original film and Broadway production, and Chilina Kennedy, known best for her historic run as Carole King in Broadway’s Beautiful—The Carole King Musical. The show also features a band of on-stage musicians that bring the score to life.

The score fuses musical theater with jazz and a traditional Middle Eastern flavor. Tony and Grammy winner David Yazbek created a truly fresh and unique sound for Broadway audiences.

With a Tony- and Grammy-winning score and featuring thrillingly talented onstage musicians, The Band’s Visit rejoices in the way music makes audiences laugh, cry, and ultimately, brings people together.

Tickets for The Band’s Visit start at $40 (plus applicable fees) and are on sale now at the Scope Arena Box Office and Ticketmaster.com. Orders for groups of 10 or more can be placed by calling 757-823-4299.
