An Egyptian police band is scheduled to perform in an Arabic enclave in Israel, but ends up instead in a small town in the Israeli desert. Their arrival provides some much-needed excitement for the residents, and offers the musicians a chance to meet some regular Israelis in a casual environment. What both sides discover is that loneliness and the need to be loved are all part of the universal human condition, and that a little music makes every situation better. David Yazbeck and Itamar Moses' Tony Award-winning musical The Band's Visit finally arrives at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com) for a lengthy run. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday (February 25 to March 8). There's an additional 6:30 p.m. show on Sunday, March 1. Tickets are $29 to $99.
