An Egyptian Police Band arrives in Israel to play a concert. After a mix-up at the border, they are sent to a remote village in the middle of the desert. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, these unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways. A new musical based on the critically acclaimed screenplay that received 36 major international awards.

Atlantic Theater Company's Linda Gross Theater is located at 336 West 20th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues).
