Hit musical ‘Come From Away’ is the newest Broadway title getting the filmed live on stage treatment.
Nominated for seven Tony Awards and winning Best Direction of a Musical, the show tells of the true events which transpired after the September 11 attacks, when over 7,000 people aboard 38 planes were forced to land on a small town called Gander in Newfoundland and Labrador.
To be directed by Christopher Ashley, with book, lyrics, and music by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, the show will be staged and filmed in May with the Broadway cast. It will be filmed by the same company behind the Hamilton live filmed version currently available on Disney+.
While there are no specifics yet on which platform it will stream, this filmed version is expected to be released in September 2021. A film adaptation of the musical has also been announced previously.
