Video: On-Stage at Broadway’s “The Band's Visit"


NBC Nightly News visited Broadway’s The Band's Visit and recorded a 360-degree video of the cast performing “Answer Me,” the musical’s searing 11 o’clock number. Submerge yourself in this video along side Adam Kantor, who plays the Telephone Guy, while he kicks off the song before he is joined by the rest of the cast on the rotating stage.

Based on the 2007 film by Eran Kolirin, The Band's Visit follows an Egyptian police band, who, after a mixup at the border, find themselves in a remote village in the middle of the Israeli 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. Book your tickets for The Band's Visit by visiting the show page at the bottom, and prepare yourself for a moving experience you won't soon forget.
