A 9/11 musical? Inneresting…

Come From Away is a fairly new musical that revolves around the town of Gander, Newfoundland on September 11, 2001.

The play was originally developed by the Canadian Music Theatre Project in Oakville, Ontario, Canada by Irene Sankoff and David Hein who wrote the music and lyrics.

From there the musical was developed more at Goodspeed Musicals' Festival of New Artists in East Haddam CT before landing at the La Jolla Playhouse or Seattle Repertory Theater.

Well now it's time for bigger and better things as it was just revealed that the musical will open on Broadway in the Spring of 2017!

Director Christopher Ashley previously talked a bit about the plot, saying:

"Come from Away is based on the true story of 38 planes carrying thousands of people from across the globe, diverted to Gander, Newfoundland on September 11th, 2001. Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, this small town's spirited people cheered the stranded travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we're all part of a global family. It's an uncanny, incredibly touching piece that reflects the days following 9/11. A big part of our mission is to develop new work and I can't think of a better example to kick off our new season."

If you're interested in seeing the musical before it lands in New York, it is set to run at Ford's Theater in Washington D.C. from September 2 - October 9 and then at the Mirvish Theater in Toronto from November 15, 2016 - January 1, 2017!
