Take a glimpse at Ari'el Stachel singing “Haled’s Song About Love” from the new Broadway musical The Band's Visit, David Yazbek and Itamar Moses’ heartfelt tale of life and love in a small Israeli town. Stachel plays Haled in the show, a young Egyptian man with a soft spot for romance and jazz musician Chet Baker.
The Band’s Visit will begin previews October 7 ahead of a November 9 opening at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. David Cromer directs.
Based on the screenplay by Eran Kolirin, The Band’s Visit follows the story of an Egyptian police band, who, after a mixup at the border, find themselves in a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert. With no bus or hotel in sight, the band members are led into unlikely friendships with some of the locals, causing their lives to intertwine in unexpected and spectacular ways.
The show arrives on Broadway following an acclaimed and sold-out world premiere at Off-Broadway’s Atlantic Theater Company—with much of the original cast and creative team in tow.
Completing the cast are Katrina Lenk, Tony nominees Tony Shalhoub and John Cariani, George Abud, Andrew Polk, Bill Army, Adam Kantor, Rachel Prather, Jonathan Raviv, Sharone Sayegh, Kristen Sieh, Etai Benson, and Alok Tewari.
