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!

4.0 star rating Gail A. from Dallas, Texas


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!

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.

2.0 star rating from Buffalo, New York


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.

2.0 star rating Eileen Driscoll from Saw at The Bushnell in Hartford, CT


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.

1.0 star rating Very Dissapointed from Toronto, Ontario


I have no idea how this show managed to win ANY awards. You keep waiting for something to happen... But nothing ever does. The ONLY enjoyable part was the last 5 minutes when the Band FINALLY plays!! Why, oh why wasn't there more of the Band?? Do not waste your theatre dollars on this boring show!

1.0 star rating Kk from Toronto, Ontario


very slow paced. not interesting at all. Can't compare to Come From Away which is way more uplifting.

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".
