The Bands Visit a New Musical on Broadway from Oct 07 2017

David Yazbek Previews “The Band’s Visit” With Tune About Iconic Egyptian Artists

The Band’s Visit is a New Broadway Musical based on a film by Eran Kollirin and was Israel’s original Foreign Language Film submission for the 80th Academy Awards, but was rejected by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences because it contained over 50% English dialogue. Thus, Israel sent Beaufort instead; Beaufort was finally included in the five final nominees. ‘Band’s Visit’ won eight Israeli Ophir Prizes awarded by the Israeli Film Academy.
