Marisol goes to bed in her New York City apartment but awakens after a visit from her guardian angel to a surreal and crumbling new reality. The Bronx has become a battlefield as leather-clad angels take up arms against an old and dying God in a war to save the universe. The moon has disappeared, food has turned to salt, and chaos follows Marisol at every turn as she attempts to find hope among the ruins in this primal, poetic, fantastical, and often humor.

The critically acclaimed new musical, THE BAND’S VISIT, celebrates the deeply human ways music, longing and laughter can connect us all. After a mix-up at the border, an Egyptian Police Band is sent to a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, these unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways.
Based on the multi-award winning film, THE BAND’S VISIT is brought to the stage by three-time Tony® nominee DAVID YAZBEK (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Full Monty), Drama Desk nominee ITAMAR MOSES (Nobody Loves You, Fortress of Solitude) and acclaimed director DAVID CROMER (Our Town, The House of Blue Leaves).

The Art Providence Show was created in 2017 to replace RISD\'s well-loved, long-running annual holiday sale upon its cancellation. While maintaining the same location and much of the pre-existing audience, the show differs from RISD\'s in that it is juried and applications are open to all artists/makers/designers working in the included categories – including but not limited to RISD alumni.  The new format has received rave reviews and swiftly gained a reputation for attracting some of the country’s top artists, artisans, and designers. This year\'s show will take place November 8-10  at the RI Convention Center in downtown Providence. It\'s a month earlier than normal, so mark your calendar!

Over 150 artists, makers and designers will be showing and selling their work - including but not limited to RISD alumni, who come from throughout New England and beyond.  In the spirit of similar shows run by the American Craft Council, CraftBoston and other premier art and craft institutions, Art Providence Show artists’ work has been juried by a panel of experts active in art, craft and design. Show categories include ceramics, jewelry, painting, furniture, apparel and more.

By popular demand, we\'ll be bringing back the Local Food Favorites sampling area and the Kids Corner art activity area. A portion the proceeds supports Providence CityArts for Youth.

Whether you\'re a collector seeking new works to add to your collection, an interior designer looking for fresh ideas, or a holiday shopper wanting to get a jump on the shopping season, this show is sure to have something for you.

We look forward to seeing you in November!
