Roast follows the friends and family of Sam, a talented young comedian who took his own life, as they fulfill his last request: to hold a roast of him instead of a traditional funeral.

The Band's Visit Sep 10 - Sep 22, 2019  
Cadillac Palace Theatre The Band's Visit
 
The Band's Visit is about a meeting of two groups of strangers, brought together by a simple mishap. Instead of ending up in the bustling city of Petah Tikva in Israel, an Egyptian police band accidentally end up in the small, isolated town of the similarly-pronounced Bet Hatikva and are taken in by the locals for one night. Although the setting is the catalyst for David Yazbek's beautiful, Middle Eastern-infused score, you could pick this story up and place it in any isolated town or village anywhere in the world. It is this universal aspect to the story that audiences are connecting to. A small, "unimportant" story is speaking volumes about humanity and how we can form bonds with those we usually wouldn't encounter in our regular lives. How do we overcome our loneliness? How do we re-connect with our estranged loved ones?
