"We honor what was lost… but we also commemorate what we found!" Apple TV+ has unveiled an official trailer for the filmed movie version of the acclaimed Broadway musical called Come From Away, which initially premiered as a Canadian show back in 2013 years before it made its way to Broadway. This version was recorded in New York with an audience which included 9/11 survivors & frontline workers. Experience the Broadway musical filmed live at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater. The Tony Award-winning musical tells the remarkable true story of 38 flights grounded in a small Canadian town. As the locals host these "come from aways," they come together and find hope. Directed by Christopher Ashley. Produced by Bill Condon (of Beauty and the Beast, Chicago, Dreamgirls). The musical tells the story of 7,000 people stranded in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland after all flights into the US are grounded on September 11, 2001. This looks like a wonderfully uplifting and heartwarming story about connection even in terrifying times. Enjoy.
