This was a beautiful, don't listen to people calling it boring. It's thoughtful, moving, extremely well acted, and has great music. A must see.

This is not your everyday traditional "mainstream" musical (e.g. cats, phantom, Les mis) and will likely not have the same mass people. BUT... This is a work of art where silence on stage is golden and there is nuance with each move. The music is beautiful and the acting phenomenal. A must see for lovers of all things broadway. My only critic is the the Mirvish theatre where, once again, I felt the sound was muffled. Wish they would deal with this given the ticket prices

BEAUTIFUL AND NOT NEEDING THE FLASHY STUFF
If you want explosions and Disney, look elsewhere. If you want something beautiful that speaks to the heart gently and passionately, go see this show.

I loved this! I left feeling refreshed and happy.

Simple miscommunication leads a band to a small town where laughter is shared, music is played and hearts are explored. Beautiful things happen when you sit with strangers and share hearts. Dina (Janet Dacal) couldn’t be more gorgeous. Papi and Haled contrast very well and go from hysterical to smooth in an instant. Phone guy hits his note and do not leave after the bow!!!! Bought the cd and met cast at stage door. Beautiful people. Thank you!

STARS ALL SHINE
We've all gotten directions mixed up and unexpected hospitality is always a delight. This happens! Lots of laughs and truths. A band absorbed by strangers and a town changed by the band. Dina and Haled shine !!! Popi - love your song! Even Sasson has a tune!!! LOVED IT !!! Bought the CD - not the current cast tho just FYI.

I LOVED THE BAND’S VISIT
What drew me to this musical is the beautiful score and clever lyrics . The story is about people from different cultures communicating and helping each other . It’s an uplifting story . The cast is excellent. If you only like “razz a matazz” musicals , this is not for you . If you can appreciate a story about people and beautiful music , you will love it .

beautiful Moving UNEXPECTED
Just as song might sweep you away into an unexpected mood so too does Tewfiq's band as their music infiltrates into the lives of these people - and the audience!
Our Broadway reviewer Nicola Quinn saw The Band's Visit in New York City - here's what she thought! "One of my favorite things to do is step into a cinema or theatre having no idea about the narrative that is about to unfold or the "word on the street".Read full review
