Cheapest Come From Away the Musical – Select Seats & Order Tickets Online
Come From Away has just booked the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Broadway. This new rock musical tells the unique story of a band of travelers thrown together by the events of September 11th when their planes were diverted to a tiny town in Newfoundland.
Per previous announcements, previews for Come From Away will start on February 18, 2017, with opening night to follow on March 12. The Humans, the Tony-winning show currently playing at the Schoenfeld, is due to close in January 2017.
Prior to its Broadway debut, the show will be presented in two benefit concerts on October 29. These special shows will be held in Gander, Newfoundland, the town around which the musical revolves.
The book, music, and lyrics are all the work of Canadian husband and wife duo Irene Sankoff and David Hein, previously known for My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding. The Tony-nominated Christopher Ashley (Memphis) will direct.
Cast members include Tony nominee Chad Kimball and Gen Carr, Jenn Colella, Petrina Bromley, Joel Hatch, Rodney Hicks, Lee MacDougall, Caesar Samayoa, Q. Smith, Astrid Van Wieren, Josh Breckenridge, Sharon Wheatley, Tony LePage, Susan Dunstan, and Tamika Lawrence.
The billing tells the story, describing how nearly 7,000 air travelers on 38 planes descended on Gander, Newfoundland on one fateful day in September. The town’s population doubled, and miraculous events began to unfold in a place few had ever heard of.
Come From Away is currently showing at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, DC. The pre-Broadway engagement opened on September 2 and has been extended to October 16th. A run at the Royal Alexandria Theatre in Toronto is scheduled for November 15, 2016, to January 8, 2017.
The show’s world premiere occurred in the summer of 2015 at the La Jolla Playhouse. It moved on to set new box office records at the Seattle Repertory Theatre.
The Broadway production is being staged by Junkyard Dog Productions, the same company responsible for bringing First Date and Memphis from the West Coast to Broadway.
