Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Atlanta has announced that "The Band's Visit," one of the most Tony Award-winning musicals in Broadway history, will be coming to Atlanta from Jan. 21-26.
"The Band's Visit" will play at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta from January 21-26, 2020. The performance schedule is as follows: Tuesday through Thursday: 7:30 p.m.; Friday: 8 p.m.; Saturday: 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sunday: 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
After a mix-up at the border, an Egyptian Police Band is sent to a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, these unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways. "The Band's Visit" celebrates the deeply human ways music, longing and laughter can connect us all.
Award-winning Israeli film actor Sasson Gabay will reprise the role of “Tewfiq,” the role he created in the 2007 film of The Band’s Visit and most recently played on Broadway. Joining him for the tour is critically acclaimed actress Janet Dacal in the role of “Dina.”
