The Band's Visit
About The Band's Visit
"You can’t help wishing that this exquisitely peaceful musical could lodge in Washington for a very long time. It’s one of those rare shows that has captured a bit of magic" —The Washington Post
“One of the most ravishing musicals you will ever be seduced by.”—The New York Times
The Band’s Visit is the winner of 10 Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, making it one of the most Tony®-winning musicals in history. It is also a Grammy Award® winner for Best Musical Theater Album.
In this joyously offbeat story, set in a town that’s way off the beaten path, a band of musicians arrive lost, out of the blue. 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. Even the briefest visit can stay with you forever. The cast of world-class performers is led by award-winning Israeli actor Sasson Gabay, star of the original film and the Broadway production, and Chilina Kennedy, known best for her historic run as Carole King in Broadway’s Beautiful–The Carole King Musical.
With a Tony®- and Grammy®-winning score that seduces your soul and sweeps you off your feet, and featuring thrillingly talented onstage musicians, The Band’s Visit rejoices in the way music makes us laugh, makes us cry, and ultimately, brings us together. The Washington Post says, “it’s the best musical on Broadway! Beautiful music, beautiful story, beautiful acting.”
