Come From Away - see it - UPDATE 2/19/17

IMG_0170I've just returned from the 3rd Broadway preview. It has transferred well. BUY TICKETS NOW!

Six months after Sept 11th,  I received an email that told the story of the community in Newfoundland that took in  the passengers from the planes that couldn't land in the East Coast of the US when the air space was closed. I cried and cried as I read the story. It didn't permeate our media at all. Several years later I did see this Tom Brokaw Documentary. Then I heard nothing more about it until Labor Day Weekend when I was standing in the Public Theater Shakespeare in the Park line for Twelfth Night. 

The guy in front of me was a freelance drummer who worked some of the FringeNYC Festival shows that I hadn't seen. He said that his friend was the drummer in a new musical called Come From Away about this town in Canada that housed the passengers that couldn't return to the US when airspace was closed on Sept 11th. The show was playing at the Ford's Theater in Washington DC. He decided to go see it before Broadway and I thought...I'm going to do that too...and I did.

The show is beyond fabulous. It will be the next Broadway game changer when it arrives in February. The show is heading to Toronto and Gander before landing in NYC in February. NYC ticketing starts later this month. See details here. See the show. Bring tissues. Bring friends.
