The full lineup for Come From Away Show Spotlight panel at BroadwayCon 2018 has been announced. Moderated by Mo Rocca, the panel will feature the show's creators, Irene Sankoff and David Hein; members of the creative team, including Christopher Ashley (director), Kelly Devine (musical staging), and Ian Eisendrath (music coordinator and arranger); and cast members Petrina Bromley, Geno Carr, Jenn Colella, Alex Finke, De'Lon Grant, Joel Hatch, Chad Kimball, Caesar Samayoa, Q.

Now running at the Schoenfeld Theatre, Come From Away tells the true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them in the wake of the September 11 attacks. The show earned seven Tony nominations, including Christopher Ashley, who won the award for his direction.

BroadwayCon, taking place January 26-28 at the Jacob Javits Center, will feature panels, performances, interviews, workshops, sing-alongs, and more, all packed into a three-day weekend. Past panels have included previews from upcoming Broadway shows, conversations with the casts and creatives of this season's hits, and discussions featuring the industry's top producers and designers. BroadwayCon is produced by Mischief Management.
