Cast and creative team members from Broadway's Tony-nominated musical Come From Away will make their Broadway at W debut with a performance on Sunday, July 30, at 7:30pm at the W Times Square.

The evening will feature performances by Alec Berlin, Jessica Bird, Petrina Bromley, David Hein, Tamika Lawrence, Tony LePage, Julie Reiber and Astrid Van Wieren. Tony nominee David Hein, who wrote the musical's book, music, and lyrics with his wife Irene Sankoff, will perform with the cast as well, while Q. Smith, who plays Hannah in the musical, will host the event.

Broadway at W is produced by Broadway and TV veterans in an effort to shed a light on Broadway's hottest shows and their talented casts. Produced by 42 Seven Productions in partnership with the W Times Square, the intimate concert series features performances accompanied by an acoustic guitar and cajón.

Set against the backdrop of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Come From Away follows what happens when 38 planes and 6,579 passengers are forced to land in Gander, Newfoundland, doubling the population of "one small town on the edge of the world." With Tony-winning direction by Christopher Ashley and choreography by Kelly Devine, the musical earned seven Tony nominations, including Best Musical.

The current Broadway cast, now performing at the Schoenfeld Theatre, features Tony nominee Jenn Colella, Chad Kimball, Kendra Kassebaum, Geno Carr, Joel Hatch, Rodney Hicks, Lee MacDougall, Caesar Samayoa, Q. Smith, Sharon Wheatley, Astrid Van Wieren, Petrina Bromley, Josh Breckenridge, Susan Dunstan, Tamika Lawrence, and Tony LePage.
