The international hit musical Come From Away resumes performances at Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre September 21 after an 18-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Written by Tony nominees and Olivier winners Irene Sankoff and David Hein, Come From Away tells the true story of 7,000 stranded air passengers during the wake of the 2001 terrorist attacks, and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. In addition to their principal roles, the ensemble cast take on a variety of characters, from passengers to locals to airline personnel.
