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!

REALLY REFRESHING AND BEAUTIFUL
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!

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

COULD UNDERSTAND EVERY 10TH WORD
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.

I WISH I COULD HAVE REALLY LIKED IT, BUT I REALLY DIDN'T.
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.

SLOW MOVING, HARD TO UNDERSTAND, BORING
Was excited to go to the theater. Always lovely to see a show and be taken to another place for a short amount of time. Unfortunately, this was not able to capture me nor keep my engagement. Spent most my time trying to understand what they were saying. Was waiting to see how the band changed this place….but I just didn’t see that.

THE BAND'S VISIT
This would have been my first theatre production for me to "leave early".... If I had been driving, I would have left with in 45 min. There is talent in this production, great voices, talented musicians for sure. The story line was soooo slow, and so unconnected & hard to follow. Our group of 4 felt the same way.. we got outside and we all said "that was the worst show we have experienced!"

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".Read full review
