The critically acclaimed smash-hit Broadway musical 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.

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.

“IT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE ANY MUSICAL EVER. It doesn’t sound like anything else you’ve heard. PERFECT is the wrong word for such an unusual musical, but it will just have to do.” – New York Magazine

“An exquisitely peaceful musical. The Band’s Visit is 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. David Yazbek’s simmering score, which inflects Broadway balladry and character songs with a haunting Middle Eastern accent, feels as essential as oxygen.”                      –  The New York Times

“My favorite musical of the Year.” – Wall Street Journal

“My favorite musical of the Decade.” – Buzzfeed

“One of my favorite musicals of ALL TIME!” – Rolling Stone
