Photo Coverage: COME FROM AWAY Celebrates 500 Performances on Broadway!
FROM AWAY began performances on February 18, 2017 and officially opened to critical acclaim on March 12, 2017 at Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street), and earlier today, the company celebrated a major milestone- 500 performances. Check out photos from the celebration below!
Now in its second smash hit year on Broadway, Come From Away tells the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. On September 11, 2001 the world stopped. On September 12, their stories moved us all.
