  The Band's Visit at The Kennedy Center

The Band's Visit

The Kennedy Center
2700 F Street, NW Washington

Winner of 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical, The Band's Visit celebrates the deeply human ways music, longing and laughter can connect us all. When an Egyptian band winds up stranded in a remote Israeli village, their lives become intertwined with the people of the village in the most unexpected ways. With a Tony- and Grammy-winning score, the musical rejoices in the powerful way song unites us. Tony Award winners David Yazbek, Itamar Moses and director David Cromer bring The Band's Visit to the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The musical proves that even the briefest visit can stay with you forever.

Washington Post - Highly Recommended

"...Broadway’s 2018 Tony Awards champ “The Band’s Visit” (10 wins) has arrived at the Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater, and you can’t help wishing that this exquisitely peaceful musical could lodge in Washington for a very long time. It’s one of those rare shows that has captured a bit of magic, which is delightful because there isn’t a single fancy thing about it."

BroadwayWorld - Highly Recommended

"...Under the direction of David Cromer, the touring production benefits from a uniformly stellar cast adept at conveying emotional and comedy in the most natural of ways. Chilina Kennedy is wholly believable as Dina, a woman who has been hurt many times, is a bit sarcastic, but ultimately has a big heart. The strongest vocalist of the bunch, she slays "Omar Sharif" (Yazbek's strongest number, at least musically), but also interprets each lyric beautifully."

Talkin Broadway - Highly Recommended

"...Eisenhower Theatre in Washington, demonstrates that a musical can succeed without flashy costumes, elaborate scenery, or dazzling production numbers if it has heart, genuine emotion, and skillful writing, acting and direction.x

DC Metro Theater Arts - Highly Recommended

"...Directed by David Cromer, The Band’s Visit is a gorgeous, generous work of art. It is a musical that knows and dignifies the soul. It is a musical about a small sliver of humanity that has an enormous sweep to it. With fifteen splendidly performed musical numbers, The Band’s Visit is an inspired journey providing an attentive audience a look into the human condition with its longing for true connections."

Theatre Bloom - Highly Recommended

"...Once, not long ago, a group of musicians came from Broadway to The Kennedy Center— but you will hear about this as it is pretty important. The Tony Award-winning musical The Band’s Visit comes to the Eisenhower Theatre of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts this summer, with Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek and Book by Itamar Moses, the poignant and striking tale of two cultures meeting by mistake is brilliant and relevant in today’s ever-changing, hostile world. Directed by David Cromer with Choreography by Patrick McCollum, this enchanting modern-day fairytale of realism is filled with heart and honest moments of real life, which are truly endearing."
