COME FROM AWAY To Present CUT FROM AWAY At Feinstein's/54 Below
Broadway's Come From Away, now in its third smash hit year, will present CUT FROM AWAY: THE UNTOLD STORIES & SONGS, a one night only concert event at Feinstein's/54 Below!
CUT FROM AWAY: THE UNTOLD STORIES & SONGS, is set to feature songs by Tony Award nominees and Olivier Award winners Irene Sankoff & David Hein that did not make it to Come From Away's opening night on Broadway. This one-night-only concert will also feature stories, characters and songs that were cut during the smash hit musical's multi-city road to Broadway.
"In 2011, we travelled to Newfoundland for the 10th Anniversary of that pivotal day, along with countless returning passengers, pilots and flight crew. We spent almost a month there, interviewing everyone we could and every character in the show was inspired by a friend we made out there. Over our six year journey writing Come From Away we wanted to share every story we heard - all 16,000 of them." said writing team Irene Sankoff & David Hein, "We had so many songs that told amazing stories, but did not quite work to move our 100-minute musical forward, so some of our favorites songs were literally cut from AWAY. On Monday, February 17, we will perform what was cut, and commemorate those unsung stories."
Tickets are now on sale for both performances of CUT FROM AWAY: THE UNTOLD STORIES & SONGS, with a portion of the proceeds going to Tuesday's Children. For more information and tickets, call (646) 476-3551 or visit 54below.com.
