Come From Away musical about N.L. during 9/11 to hit Broadway
On Sept.11, 2001, Gander, N.L., saw its population literally double overnight when over 6,000 passengers were stranded in the small town after their flights were diverted from the U.S.
Their story will fly onto the Broadway stage next year in a musical by Canadian playwrights David Hein and Irene Sankoff called Come From Away.
Irene Sankoff joined The Current's Anna Maria Tremonti to talk about the musical and the personal stories that showcase the kindness and generosity of Newfoundlanders.
This segment was produced by The Current's Sarah Grant.
