So I get to say "Sorry, I'm new" on Broadway with @wecomefromaway starting November 12th. I can't believe my good fortune, or that I get to keep doing this truly remarkable show. I'm still an Islander! And yes, I'll be wearing a tiny hat plant on my head. a??i??

Savoring every second here at the Schoenfeld. My final performance on the rock will be November 10th. Come From Away came into my life as a beautiful surprise. I was leaving another show with only the unknown ahead of me, and then an audition for a newly opened hit Broadway show I hadn't seen came into my inbox. I had no idea what to expect, or how to do a Newfoundland accent. Somehow, the stars aligned and I found myself backstage at the Schoenfeld feverishly trying to figure out where to put the gosh darn chairs. Time flies when you're having fun...Over two years into a run and I am still surprised, moved, and deeply touched by this show. There are not words to express my gratitude to the cast, crew, band, creative team, audiences, and every member of the Come From Away family. Every day I've gotten to come to work and remind people (and myself) of our own capacity for kindness. This has been an immense and very special chapter of my life and I will cherish it always. No matter where life takes me I'll carry my Islander pride. • • • • • #broadway #comefromaway #imanislander #janiceandothers #twomoreweeks ? @emiliomk for @broadwaycom
