Hit musical “Come from Away” brings its message of compassion back to D.C.

Irene Sankoff and David Hein, the creators of Come from Away, talk to Thomas Floyd of the Washington Post as the Gander story comes back to Washington D.C.

They talk about the show’s first trip to our nation’s capital in 2016, when they met Pentagon survivors and family members of those killed in the September 11th terrorist attacks, in particular their meeting Kathy Dillaber, a Pentagon survivor whose sister, Patricia Mickley, was one of the 184 people killed during the attack on the Pentagon.

Ms. Dillaber plans to see the show again “several times.” She also traveled to Gander to see Come from Away there.

“I will be seeing it several times while it’s here; does that say anything about this show?” she said.
