Watch the Trailer for Filmed Version of Come From Away on Broadway
Come From Away will premiere globally on Apple TV on September 10, 2021.
A trailer has just been released for the recorded version of the Broadway musical Come From Away, which is set to debut on Apple TV on September 10, one day before the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks which provide the backdrop for the musical.
Come From Away is based on the true stories of the 7,000 transatlantic airline passengers who were diverted to Gander, Newfoundland, on September 11, 2001, and the townsfolk who came together to provide a home away from home. It features a book, music, and lyrics by Drama Desk winners Irene Sankoff and David Hein, direction by Tony winner Christopher Ashley, and choreography by Kelly Devine.

The production was filmed by director Christopher Ashley at the Schoenfeld Theatre this past May for an audience that included front-line workers and 9/11 survivors.
