An Australian engagement of Come From Away will play Melbourne in 2019. The production will open July 20 at the Comedy Theatre, which will undergo renovations prior to the musical’s bow.
Casting and additional information will be announced at a later date.
The musical, which earned director Christopher Ashley a Tony Award in 2017, continues to play Broadway’s Schoenfeld Theatre. A Toronto staging is now running at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, and a national tour will launch in Seattle in October.
Sankoff, Hein, and Ashley are also at work on a film adaptation.
