An Evening with The Band’s Visit

David Yazbek, Itamar Moses, David Cromer and the stars of The Band’s Visit

Fresh from its critically acclaimed, award-winning run at Off Broadway’s Atlantic Theater Company, The Band’s Visit has arrived on Broadway — and its cast and creators are heading to 92Y.

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 — composer and lyricist David Yazbek, librettist Itamar Moses, director David Cromer and members of the cast — have to say about their show’s exciting journey, and its inspiring message of hope.

David Cromer

David Cromer has received a Drama Desk, three Obies, three Lortels, four Jeff Awards and in 2010 was made a McArthur Foundation Fellow.

Itamar Moses

Itamar Moses is the author of the full-length plays Outrage, Bach at Leipzig, Celebrity Row, The Four of Us, Yellowjackets, Back Back Back, Completeness and The Whistleblower.

David Yazbek

A varied career as a recording artist, Emmy Award-winning TV and screenwriter, music producer and pianist has somehow led David Yazbek to become one of Broadway’s preeminent composer/lyricists.
