The winner of the 2018 Tony Award winner for Best Musical (along with nine additional Tonys), The Band’s Visit is set in a town way off the beaten path where a band of musicians arrive lost, out of the blue. Under the spell of the desert sky, the band brings the town to life in unexpected and tantalizing ways.

The performance on Thursday, April 7 at 7:30 pm will feature an American Sign Language interpreter and audio description.
