The Israeli film “The Band’s Visit” is expected to open on a New York stage next year.  The leading role has reportedly been offered to Sasson Gabai, who starred in the 2007 film,  as well as Mohammed Bakri according to Haaretz.

“The Band’s Visit” was awarded multiple awards including 8 Ophir prizes with Gabai taking home the European Film Award for Best Actor. The film is currently being adapted for stage and is still in the fundraising phase but producers hope to start rehearsals in a few months.
