THE BANDS VISIT TERRIBLE
That was the worst play I’ve ever seen. Six of us left after 30 minutes. Could not understand a word they said. Super slow and boring. Don’t waste your money.

THE BAND'S VISIT
There was a very limited story embraced by very limited acting, and very limited music. It should be re-titled "The Emperor's New Clothes" - then people would know what to expect. I came in support and left in disappointment! The story was meaningless and ill communicated - too bad!
THE WORST IS NOT STRONG ENOUGH A WORD.
I was able to get a last minute seat for $30. I over paid $29.99. Two hours of fingernails over glass would have been much better. The best part of the evening is when I used the toilet. Oh my God-this musical won awards? Who voted-Helen Keller? Open heart surgery without anesthetic would have made a better evening. I support Palestinian rights but I almost wished the band would have been Palestinian rather than Egyptian so the Israelis could murder them and I could leave after 10 minutes.

AWFUL, BORING, WORST SHOW EVER AT THE FOX
Very slow (Actors even walked in slow motion), very hard to understand with the thick Egyptian and Israeli accents , boring, not much singing, no dancing. Only show I attended at the Fox where there was no ovation at the end of the play. Everyone around us, and I mean everyone, had the same review. Even the people walking out of the show and the people walking to the car all had the same opinion.

THE BAND'S VISIT
Terrible!!! Started half hour late and ran over the 1 1/2 hr time slot. Actors forgot their lines! Whoever ran the stage lights were having trouble. Switched on the backstage lights at one point in play and then finally turned them off. Lite up the right side wall in the room where the audience sat. Guess lights were not turned into position correctly. There was a remote control device behind one stage prop that was not suppose to be seen and they quickly ran it behind the backdrop to hide it in that scene. Mics were not turned on fast enough to catch the actor's lines. A high school play is like "Broadway" compared to this amateur production. Finally gave up on it getting better and left before the end. Walked out!

I’VE BEEN TO OVER 100 BROADWAY SHOWS
This is absolutely the top of the list… if you turn the page upside down. Dreadful.
Debbie Hal from Los Angeles, California
POORLY WRITTEN AND ACTED
The music was good. The story line weak. The acting does not meet the quality of high school performances. Very slow with a lot of uncomfortable silence. I wasn’t sure if the actors forgot their lines. For what I paid for this so called professional performance was not worth it.

beautiful Moving UNEXPECTED
Just as song might sweep you away into an unexpected mood so too does Tewfiq's band as their music infiltrates into the lives of these people - and the audience!
Our Broadway reviewer Nicola Quinn saw The Band's Visit in New York City - here's what she thought! "One of my favorite things to do is step into a cinema or theatre having no idea about the narrative that is about to unfold or the "word on the street".Read full review
