YOU ARE HERE!! This weekend marks the 20th Anniversary of a day that the world will NEVER FORGET. There have been so many unforgettable stories of the strong, courageous, and caring people being there for others during that very difficult time. One of those amazing groups of people consist of the residents of Gander Newfoundland helping over 4,000 passengers survive while their planes were grounded due to that scary time.
The story of Gander’s unbelievable deeds is now told in a powerful groundbreaking musical that has continued to wow audiences everywhere….. the Award winning Come From Away. We are so happy to be celebrating the release of the filmed proshot performance of the musical out TODAY on Apple TV+.
From the stage of the Gerald Schonefeld Theatre in front of an invited audience of frontline workers, get ready to take a journey to THE ROCK like never before. Under the direction of Christopher Ashley, this filmed cast is led by original Broadway cast members…..
