A band comprised of members of the Egyptian police force head to Israel to play at the inaugural ceremony of an Arab arts center, only to find themselves lost in the wrong town.
Sasson Gabai, who plays Tewfiq in the film, reprised his role in the Broadway musical from June 26th 2018 taking over the role originally played on-stage by Tony Shalhoub. He is also scheduled to reprise the role in a future Israeli production of the musical.
When speaking in Arabic, Tawfiq pronounces some words with the Egyptian Arabic pronunciation, and some words with the Palestinian Arabic pronunciation. Being an Egyptian, he should talk in Egyptian Arabic dialect all the time.
