What Female Empowerment Means to the Cast of Broadway's Come From Away
Jenn Colella, Sharon Wheatley, Petrina Bromley, and Astrid Van Wieren on why women’s stories should continue to be told on Broadway and how the show’s message is empowering to women today.
Come From Away was inspired by the true story of a group of travelers whose planes were diverted to a small Newfoundland town following the September 11 attacks in 2001. The original musical features book, music, and lyrics by the Canadian husband-and-wife team Irene Sankoff and David Hein (My Mother's Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding).
The show is currently playing the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Broadway.
