An Evening with The Band’s Visit

David Yazbek, Itamar Moses, David Cromer, Orin Wolf, Katrina Lenk, and Ari’el Stachel in Conversation with Michael Paulson – with special performances by cast members Katrina Lenk and Ari’el Stachel

The Band’s Visit is the winner of four Best Musical Awards and has been included on every major Best of the Year list, including The New York Times, New York, Time Out New York and Entertainment Weekly.

Based on the hit 2007 Israeli film, this deeply human and humorous musical tells the story of an Egyptian police band that’s sent to a remote village in the Israeli desert, where the locals take them in. Hear what the artists behind this moving celebration of cross-cultural exchange have to say about their show’s exciting journey, and its inspiring message of hope — composer and lyricist David Yazbek, librettist Itamar Moses, director David Cromer, producer Orin Wolf, and cast members Katrina Lenk and Ari’el Stachel.
