Tue, Nov 15: It's the first musical to hit the newly renovated Royal Alexandra theatre. "Come From Away" takes place on 9/11 after dozens of planes and thousands of passengers were grounded in Gander, Newfoundland. Global's Melanie Zettler meets with the cast and creative team to find out more about this kindhearted, Canadian story.
TORONTO – Canadian smash “Come From Away” won four prizes at the Dora Mavor Moore Awards on Monday, including best production in the musical theatre category.
The homegrown musical about Newfoundland hospitality in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks played to audiences in Toronto last fall ahead of its current award-winning run on Broadway.
The Mirvish production also took home the best new musical/opera award, and an outstanding female performance prize for Jenn Colella for her portrayal of real-life retired airline Capt. Beverley Bass.
