Now Playing on Broadway at the Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street)
Come From Away tells the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
On September 11, 2001 the world stopped. On September 12, their stories moved us all.
Now in its third smash year on Broadway, the Tony Award-winning Come From Away is currently playing to standing room only houses in five cities around the world. Earlier this year the London production won 4 Olivier Awards including “Best New Musical.”
The creative team includes Beowulf Boritt (sets), Toni-Leslie James (costumes), Howell Binkley (lights), Gareth Owen (sound), August Eriksmoen (orchestrations), and Ian Eisendrath (music arrangements).
