Ford's Theatre Society today announced the Ford's Theatre cast for the new musical Come From Away, directed by Christopher Ashley. The production features: Geno Carr (Old Globe's Allegiance), Jenn Colella (Broadway's If/Then); Joel Hatch (Broadway's Annie); Rodney Hicks (Broadway's The Scottsboro Boys); Kendra Kassebaum (Broadway's Wicked); Alyssa Wilmoth Keegan (Round House's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof); Chad Kimball (Broadway's Memphis); Lee MacDougall (Wizard of Oz National Tour); Caesar Samayoa (Broadway's Sister Act); Q.

Come From Away is the breathtaking new musical that played record-breaking engagements in San Diego and Seattle-and now it is coming to Ford's Theatre. Written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, this is the stunning production from Tony®-nominated directorChristopher Ashley (Memphis) that the Los Angeles Times calls "an affecting and stirring new musical."

On September 11th, 38 planes with 6,579 passengers were stranded in a remote town in Newfoundland. The locals opened their hearts and homes, and hosted this international community of strangers for a week-spurring unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances. Featuring a rousing score of folk and rock, Come From Away honors the better angels of our nature, revealing hope and humanity in a time of darkness.

Come From Away runs September 2 to October 9, 2016, at historic Ford's Theatre. Tickets are now on sale and range from $20 to $73. Discounts are available for groups, senior citizens, military personnel and those younger than 35.

Come From Away is made possible by Lead Sponsor Exxon Mobil Corporation and Production Sponsor Siemens Corporation. The 2016-2017 season sponsors are The Home Depot and Chevron.
