Tony Nominee Jenn Colella Will Depart COME FROM AWAY in November
BroadwayWorld has just learned that Jenn Colella, original cast member of Come From Away, will depart the musical next month. Colella was Tony-nominated for her performance as 'Captain Beverly Bass.' She will play her final performance on November 10, 2019.
After 6 cities, 5 years, and nearly 1200 performances as Captain Beverley Bass (and more breathtaking moments than I can count), my last performance in Come From Away on Broadway will be November 10th. There are no words to express my appreciation for the cast, crew, creative team, and my extended Come From Away family. I have been blown away by our audiences, first around the country, and then here on Broadway for years... The love and support for this show is astounding and it has fed my soul. It has been my greatest honor to tell this beautiful story of kindness and humanity every day alongside my dear friends. It's true ~ I found my heart, but leave a part of me behind. Please join me at the Schoenfeld for these last few weeks and let's celebrate love, hope, friendship, generosity, kindness and gratitude together. ???? #imfinetom
