What is The Band's Visit About?
Based on the 2007 critically acclaimed movie by Eran Kolirin, this new musical adaptation sees two very different cultures mesh together throughout the course of one night. A simple spelling mistake at the Egypt/Israel border sees the Alexandria Police Band redirected to the wrong town, where there is no public transport, nor hotels. Taken in by the charitable restaurant owner as they discuss their predicament, the band are invited to stay at his various relatives' homes overnight. Love is in the air for one member of the band, which culminates in an enchanting evening at the local ice-skating rink. The others realise that their lives are changed forever after this change in circumstance.
