Breaking News: Hal Prince to Direct New Musical THE BAND'S VISIT by Wolf & Williams

Orin Wolf (Once) and Maxwell Williams are developing a new musical based on Eran Kolirin's film The Band's Visit, which won the Jury Coup de Couer prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Band's Visit will be directed by 21-time Tony Award winner Harold Prince. The musical is being prepared for the 2014-15 Hartford Stage season.

The Band's Visit tells the story of the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Band's arrival in Israel to play at the opening of a cultural center. But when their hosts don't show, an error in communication sends them in the wrong direction and they find themselves in a small settlement in the heart of the Negev Desert. With no transportation out until morning, and no hotel in sight, the beleaguered band is left to spend the night. The Band's Visit is a tale about our ability to heal each other in the most surprising ways and in the most unlikely places.
