The Lincoln Memorial will light up the Mall on eve of 9/11, with a Broadway musical noting an arts rebirth and a solemn anniversary

On September 10, 2021, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, a free concert performance of Come from Away will be presented to welcome theatre back to Washington DC and to mark the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Members of the Broadway company will perform in a production dreamed up by Paul Tetreault, director of Ford’s Theatre. The audience on the National Mall could number in the thousands, reports Peter Marks for the Washington Post.

“There’s not a better story to tell to have people acknowledge that in darkness, there can be hope, there can be the promise of a better tomorrow,” said Tetreault.
