This was one of those shows I went to see knowing very little about it. I had read it was coming a few months go, bought a ticket and put it out of my mind. A musical, I knew not what to expect. When I go to a musical i expect something big like Hamilton or Come From Away but The Band’s Visit wasn’t that. It was a slow moving story with passable voices and little dancing ability, and yet, it was a story. Midway I started to get into it. The lead actress, Katrina Lenk, had a lovely voice, strong, stable, and the perfect look an attitude for her role. Later it occurred to me that her co-star was Monk. I love Monk, and here he was. If you have seen everything great I would surely go see this.
It was a day in a life, in every life. Each character was a different role, a different person, waiting on a different thing. Was this about waiting? About loss? About love? about everything? perhaps.
