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

1.0 star rating Alina from Toronto, Ontario


Do not recommend this show. No plot, very boring, slow. I am very sad to spend my time for this. Please spend some time with your family or your close people instead of this play.My expectations were so high and at the end I am so frustrated.Only one thing Band played very nice at the end of the show.

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.

1.0 star rating Cynthia from Milwaukee, Wisconsin


We are season ticket holders. Sadly, this was a sleeper. I was looking forward to it since I studied in Israel. It was a waste of my money.

2.0 star rating TWD from Louisville, Kentucky


Last night's performance was the first Broadway Series show I have ever walked out on because it was so boring.

4.0 star rating Mary FJ from Minneapolis, Minnesota


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!

1.0 star rating Francisco Scaramanga from Schenectady, New York


That was the worst play I’ve ever seen. Six of us left after 30 minutes. Could not understand a word they said. Super slow and boring. Don’t waste your money.

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".
