A Musical for the Ages, This Performance at the Hobby Center Will Leave You Wanting More

Hobby Center for the Performing Arts is ecstatic to present The Band’s Visit, which allows us to rejoice in the way music brings us to life, brings us to laughter, brings us to tears, and ultimately, brings us together. See it for yourself on Friday, January 31st at 7:30 PM.

In an Israeli desert town where every day feels the same, something different is suddenly in the air. Dina, the local café owner, had long resigned her desire for romance to daydreaming about exotic films and music from her youth. When a band of Egyptian musicians shows up lost at her café, she and her fellow locals take them in for the night. Under the spell of the night sky, their lives intertwine in unexpected ways, and this once sleepy town begins to wake up. Even the briefest visit can stay with you forever.

The cast of world-class performers is led by an award-winning Israeli actor, Sasson Gabay, star of the original film and the Broadway production, and Chilina Kennedy, known best for her historic run as Carole King in Broadway’s Beautiful – The Carole King Musical. The Band’s Visit is the winner of 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, making it one of the most Tony-winning musicals in history. 

With a Tony and Grammy-winning score that seduces your soul and sweeps you off your feet, The Band’s Visit is not a performance worth missing. Tickets are on sale now at www.houston.broadway.com.

It’s hard to leave home sometimes – trust us, we know. But The Villages of Lake Jackson Apartments in Lake Jackson, Texas believes it is important to not only stay active in your community but to also express curiosity about new subjects. This event is the perfect chance to spread your roots and learn new things!
