Award-Winning Israeli Film Headed for U.S. Stage

Americans have grown accustomed to seeing Israeli entertainment adapted for U.S. screens big and small, and now an Israeli production is making its way to the stage.

Ynet reports that “The Band’s Visit,” a 2007 movie that won three prizes at Cannes, will be staged as an off-Broadway play, with a cast that includes the father and brother of one of the film’s stars. The article doesn’t say when or where the show will be staged, but says it will be directed by off-Broadway director Maxwell Williams and produced by Orin Wolf, whose previous credits include Broadway’s “A View From the Bridge.”
