9/11 musical 'Come From Away' to play Canada, Washington

A musical set against the 9/11 terrorist attacks will play Toronto and Washington, D.C., this fall with the hope of arriving on Broadway in spring of 2017.

“Come From Away” is the true story of a Canadian town that sheltered thousands of airline passengers whose flights had been diverted on Sept. 11, 2001. It has played the La Jolla Playhouse in California and the Seattle Repertory Theatre.

It will next play Washington D.C.’s Ford’s Theatre from Sept. 2-Oct. 9, and Toronto from Nov. 15-Jan. 1, 2017, at a theater to be announced.

It is written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, a Canadian husband-and-wife writing team, and directed by La Jolla Playhouse artistic director Christopher Ashley. Beowulf Boritt will do sets and Kelly Devine will choreograph.
