Now more than a year into its run on Broadway, Come From Away shows no signs of slowing down—and neither does its message of kindness. For the cast, portraying characters who either welcome or are welcomed into a small community brings with it a particular set of advantages, and possibly none more so than the chance to connect with the show's fans at the stage door after every performance.
Watch the stars of Come From Away interact with audience members in the video above, while they discuss the show's impact on everyone.
Directed by Tony Award winner Christopher Ashley, with musical staging by two-time Tony Award nominee Kelly Devine and music supervision by Ian Eisendrath, Come From Away began performances on Broadway February 18, 2017, and officially opened to critical acclaim March 12 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.
The musical features a book, music, and lyrics by the Canadian husband-and-wife team of Irene Sankoff and David Hein (My Mother's Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding).
