BWW Review: THE BAND'S VISIT at The Orpheum Theatre Memphis

"You probably didn't hear about it, it wasn't very important. But to Memphis, it's an important moment. Don't miss The Band's Visit, running now until April 17th!"

The Band's Visit is an intimate 90 minute musical with no intermission, no big show-stopping numbers, and no 'flash' as we say in show biz. It is a very real performance about a random moment in history, based on the 2007 Israeli film of the same name.

Review: Superb 'The Band's Visit' captures the spirit and humanity of Israeli movie in musical

“'The Band’s Visit' was one of my favorite films of 2007. After seeing the national touring company production of the Tony Award winner, it’s now one of my favorite musicals of the past five years." - Lincoln Journal Star

“The Band’s Visit" isn’t a big “Broadway” style production. It’s more like a play with music that captures the spirit and humanity of the 2007 film while giving Israeli actor

A Little Understanding for the Understudies

The work of understudies, standbys, and swings is show-saving. Shout out to the incredible Loren Lester, whose work with #TheBandsVisit is featured in this writeup! 💙

The work of understudies, standbys, and swings is always exhausting and show-saving, but it took a pandemic to get most audiences and even the industry to recognize their value.

Our Story

2018 TONY AWARD WINNER FOR BEST MUSICAL NOW ON TOUR!

THE BAND’S VISIT was the winner of 10 Tony Awards, making it one of the most Tony-winning musicals in history. It was also the 2019 Grammy Awards® winner for Best Musical Theater Album. The North American Tour begins June 25.

In this delightfully offbeat story, set in a town that’s way off the beaten path, a band of musicians arrive lost, out of the blue. Under the spell of the desert sky, and with beautiful music perfuming the air, the band brings the town to life in unexpected and tantalizing ways. Even the briefest visit can stay with you forever.

With a score that seduces your soul and sweeps you off your feet, and featuring Tony-winning performances and thrillingly talented onstage musicians, THE BAND’S VISIT rejoices in the way music makes us laugh, makes us cry, and ultimately, brings us together.
