BAND IN BOSTON

Starting as an Israeli film eleased to wide acclaim in 2007, The Band’s Visit (refer to listing, page 19) has taken on a life of its own, morphing into a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical in 2017 before embarking on its current national tour, which lands at the Hub’s Citizens Bank Opera House beginning March 24. Starring Sasson Gabay (pictured), who reprises his role from both the Great White Way and the original film, The Band’s Visit tells the tale of an Egyptian police band that finds itself lost in a small town in Israel, a happenstance that ends up gloriously affecting the lives of the generous strangers they encounter there.

A SELF-MADE MAN

British master Lucian Freud (1922–2011), one of the most renowned portrait painters of his generation, also turned his brush towards images of himself throughout his artistic career. A collection of such works form the basis of Lucian Freud: The Self-Portraits, which begins March 1 at the Museum of Fine Arts (refer to listing, page 22). More than 40 works on canvas and paper populate the show, chronicling the evolution of his brushwork over the years while unflinchingly capturing the artist as he aged. This exhibit, the fi st one to exclusively focus on Freud’s depictions of himself, is an unprecedented look at an artists’ life, forming a de facto autobiography on the gallery’s very walls.

PARIS IN THE BACK BAY

Chef Michael Serpa made a name for himself in Boston at the tremendously popular North End seafood stopover Neptune Oyster before branching out on his own with the equally beloved Select Oyster Bar in the Back Bay. Now, fi e years after his fi st solo venture opened, Select has a sister restaurant right around the corner with the recent debut of Grand Tour (314 Newbury St., 857-277-0800, grandtourboston.com). This Parisian-style bistro situated in a newly renovated townhouse offers updated takes on the usual French fare—think escargot pie with caulifl wer purée and bacon lardon rather than the standard garlic- and butter-drenched snails—along with classics like steak frites (pictured). Wine is also a highlight, with bottles from France and the U.S., and all American vintages available by the glass.

THE DISH ON DINING DEALS

Sample from dozens of restaurants in and around Boston at Dine Out Boston (refer to listing, page 18), the semi-annual culinary showcase that allows participating eateries to offer low-cost, multi-course meals to hungry patrons. From March 1–6 and again from March 8–13, sup at classic eateries—from all Davio’s (pictured) locations and both the Back Bay and Cambridge outposts of Jasper White’s Summer Shack to several area Legal Sea Foods restaurants and the historic Union Oyster House—or more recent additions to the dining scene like Black Lamb and Shore Leave in the South End and The Oyster Club at Park Plaza. Prices for lunch vary from $15–25, while dinner runs from $28–38, so make your reservations while you can. It’s a red-hot opportunity to feast in style. —Scott Roberto TOP: LUCIAN FREUD, REFLECTION (SELF‑PORTRAIT), 1985; MIDDLE PHOTO: BRIAN SAMUELS
