Tony Awards 2018: "The Band's Visit" setzte sich gegen Favoriten wie "Mean Girls" oder "SpongeBob" durch

Mit insgesamt zehn Trophäen räumte bei den diesjährigen Tony Awards "The Band's Visit" ab - auch in der begehrten Kategorie "bestes Musical"

Das Musical "The Band's Visit" setzte sich bei den Tony Awards 2018 in der Kategorie "bestes Musical" gegen die Favoriten durch. Das Stück basiert auf dem Film "Die Band von nebenan" (2007). Die Geschichte handelt von einer ägyptischen Polizeikapelle, die sich in einen israelischen Wüstenort verirrt. Dabei spielt die Musik im Stück eine zentrale Rolle: sie fungiert als Hoffnungsträger für die Menschen, die letztlich doch feststellen, dass sie gar nicht so unterschiedlich sind, wie sie ursprünglich glaubten, so Produzent Orin Wolf.
