The acclaimed new musical will offer the chance to win $40 tickets to every performance.
Beginning March 16, The Band’s Visit will offer a digital lottery to make $40 same-day tickets available to theatre goers. This is in addition to the show’s established general rush seats.
The digital lottery will open at midnight on the day of each performance and will draw at 9 AM for matinees and 2 PM for evening performances. Winners will be notified by email shortly after each drawing and have two hours to claim and pay for up to two tickets online. Tickets can be picked up at the Barrymore Theatre box office 30 minutes prior to show time. Photo ID is required for pickup; seat locations and number of tickets awarded by the lottery are subject to availability. To enter and for more information, visit TheBandsVisitLottery.com.
Based on the film of the same name, the new musical is written by Itamar Moses with a score by David Yazbek. Directed by Drama Desk-winning director David Cromer, it tells the story of an Egyptian police orchestra that mistakenly winds up in an Israeli desert town.
