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.

5.0 star rating APT from Toronto, Ontario


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

5.0 star rating Eli from Cleveland, Ohio


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!

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.

Incredible music. Interesting story and timeline. I would love to see this show again in a much more intimate theater. This definitely not to the best show to see from the balcony of a huge theater, which is where I saw it from. I will agree the pacing of this show was slower, but that was part of the point, it’s realism, which we don’t often see in musicals and I loved it. I found it very refreshing and hopeful and uplifting. I can’t get enough of the soundtrack and am chomping at the bit for it to come to a small, intimate theater near me.

What we thought

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".
