The world’s a stage. Break a leg. Take a bow. However you want to slice it, we’re beyond excited to have the opportunity to invest and play a role as one of the producer's in David Yazbek [Dirty Rotten Scoundrels] and Itmar Moses' [The Fortress of Solitude] newest Broadway musical, The Band's Visit.

The Band's Visit was brought to our attention by producer John Hart and Evamere Entertainment whose theater credits include A Bronx Tale and Once. With a critically successful off-broadway run and incredibly talented cast, we are thrilled to be invited to join the ride and expand our horizons into a creative medium we've always enjoyed.

The musical debuts November 9th and you can get tickets here.

Bands Visit

Synopsis (from The Band's Visit Official Website): 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.
