My daughter went with her high school on a Theater Department trip. Rather than
opting for a few of the raunchy options, she chose to see "Come From
Away," a show she knew nothing about. It was based on the town in Nova
Scotia, who housed and and hosted one of the planes that had to be re-routed
during the 9/11 terrorist attack, and how they dealt with the large crowd. They
have a small cast who play dual parts-same actors playing passengers from the
plane, then show up as towns people in a different scene. Very interesting
format, plus beautiful music and of course, completely emotional story line. It
turned out to be one of the most moving shows she's ever seen! Highly
recommend this if anyone can afford the Eccles (which we can't). I was so
happy she was able to at least see this great show, even if our family of 6 will
not be able to.
I'm surprised that 'come from away' wasn't mentioned. I
suspect it will do well at the awards.
