by Jennifer Perry - Sep 11, 2016

Featuring a book, music, and lyrics by the married Canadian duo of Irene Sankoff and David Hein, Come From Away explores a subject area that's bound to bring up some painful memories for some.

It's one of those untold stories that is practically perfect for an original musical. (more...)
