Norfolk, Va.

Jam Theatricals is proud to announce that “The Band’s Visit,” one of the most Tony Award®-winning musicals in history, will be coming to Norfolk’s Chrysler Hall from Oct. 29 to Nov. 3 for eight performances. “The Band’s Visit” will make one of their first tour stops at Norfolk’s Chrysler Hall, and will kick off our blockbuster Broadway in Norfolk 2019-20 season.

After a mix-up at the border, an Egyptian Police Band is sent to a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, these unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways. “The Band’s Visit” celebrates the deeply human ways music, longing and laughter can connect us all.

“The Band’s Visit” opened at Broadway’s Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Nov. 9, 2017, featuring music and lyrics by Tony and Drama Desk Award winner David Yazbek, and a book by Tony, NY Drama Critics Circle, Lortel and Outer Critics Circle award winner Itamar Moses. It is based on the screenplay by Eran Kolirin, and is directed by Tony, Drama Desk, Lortel & Obie Award winner David Cromer.

The creative team also includes Patrick McCollum (Choreography), Scott Pask (Set Design), Sarah Laux (Costume Design), Tony Award winner Tyler Micoleau (Lighting Design), Tony Award winner Kai Harada (Sound Design), Maya Ciarrocchi (Projection Design), Charles G. LaPointe (Hair Designer), Tony Award winner Jamshied Sharifi (Orchestrations), Andrea Grody (Music Supervisor, Music Director & Additional Arrangements) and Dean Sharenow (Music Supervisor & Music Coordinator).
