VIDEO: Go Inside Rehearsals For COME FROM AWAY Creators Benefit Concert Of First Musical In Toronto

by Alan Henry - Jan 15, 2020

In July 2009, in the backroom of a narrow shop, two young, first-time playwrights performed their first musical at the Toronto Fringe. The show had a quirky title that immediately got it attention. When the first audiences saw it, they knew they were witnessing something unique from writers who had a very promising future. The show became a Fringe sensation. Four months later, David Mirvish, the largest Canadian commercial theatre producer, presented a longer vision of the show at the 700-seat Panasonic Theatre (now the CAA Theatre), where it was extended five times. Go inside rehearsals for the one night benefit in the video below!
