9/11 musical “Come from Away” announces Broadway dates & benefit concerts

The Broadway opening of the new musical Come from Away is scheduled for Sunday, March 12, 2017, reports Imogen Lloyd Webber on Broadway.com. The new show depicts the kindness with which residents of tiny Gander, Newfoundland treated 6,579 stranded air passengers as planes were forced to land there on 9/11. Previews will begin on Saturday, February 18, 2017.

The musical will run at a not-yet-named Schubert theatre.

There will be two benefit concert performances on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at the Steele Community Centre in Gander. All of the proceeds from the concert will be donated to Newfoundland charities.

Before the Broadway opening, the play will run from September 2 through October 9, 2016 at Ford’s Theatre in Washington; then will play Toronto’s Royal Alexandra Theatre from November 15, 2016 until January 8, 2017.
