The Today Show’s Megyn Kelly took in a recent performance of the Tony-nominated musical Come From Away and invited the cast to perform on Megyn Kelly Today.
Come From Away chronicles the story of the passengers of 38 plans that were grounded when the U.S. closed its air space on September 11, 2001, including the story of American Airlines Captain Beverly Bass. Colella portrays the real-life pilot, the first female captain in history.
Kelly gives a refresh of Bass’ story below.
Bass has seen the show over 60 times to date. But for those who haven’t, Colella—who earned a 2017 Tony nomination for her performance in the show—sings her big number “Me and the Sky” in the video below.
Written by Tony nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, directed by Tony winner Christopher Ashley, and choreographed by Tony nominee Kelly Devine, the musical celebrates one year of Broadway performances February 18.
