Tamid Arts

Tamid Arts Calendar 2017-2018

The Band’s Visit – March 13, 2018 –
(SOLD OUT)
In THE BAND’S VISIT, a mix-up sends a group of Egyptian musicians to a remote Israeli town. When the locals take them in for the night, their lives intertwine in the most unexpected ways.
Fate brought them to town. Their music brought it to life. Winner of four BEST MUSICAL awards, and now honored on every major BEST OF THE YEAR list, THE BAND’S VISIT rejoices in the deeply human ways music, longing and laughter can bring us all together. The New York Times cheers, “It’s time to fall in love with one of the most ravishing musicals ever. ‘Feel Something Different’—that’s the heart-clutching sensation that throbs throughout this miraculous show.”
