I was pulled into the lives and loves of the various small town characters. I felt the lonesomeness and pain and saw the struggle as each just tries to find some happiness in their existence. And the band can play.

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 .

No, this does not deliver at breakneck social media speed. You wait, you listen, you watch. And then it delivers. Laughs, sweetness, hauntingly beautiful music, and being transported to another facet of life. Slow down, relax and enjoy!

REALLY REFRESHING AND BEAUTIFUL
I totally enjoyed this musical. The story was deep and sweet, while simple. The music was the best. It was so surprising to hear something really different, not just the same old, same old. The middle eastern flavor, combined with classic American pop, was really fun. The musicians, singers and actors were all high quality. No, this is not constant excitement , overdone and flashy, but it was soothing and definitely entertaining. Thanks for a terrific night of theater!

WORST MUSICAL EVER
Last night's performance was the first Broadway Series show I have ever walked out on because it was so boring.
from Buffalo, New York
COULD UNDERSTAND EVERY 10TH WORD
Beautiful music, but largely unintelligible lyrics and dialogue, despite having front/center seats. Everyone afterwards asking what the play was about. Worst experience we’ve had in the many years we’ve subscribed. Disappointing.
Eileen Driscoll from Saw at The Bushnell in Hartford, CT
I WISH I COULD HAVE REALLY LIKED IT, BUT I REALLY DIDN'T.
Have read the reviews before writing this, just to be sure I was in my right mind. The performers were very talented, but the plot lacked something. The accents were very thick, so the dialogue was somewhat difficult to understand in a number of places. Not sure why it got all the awards it got, except that there were Egyptians and Jews sharing the good side of humanity. I certainly wouldn't encourage anyone to spend big bucks on it. As another reviewer stated, the last 5 minutes were the best.
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".
