Apple TV+ has released the official trailer musical film Come From Away based on the Tony-winning Broadway musical.
The filmed version of 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. As the people of Newfoundland graciously welcome the “come from aways” into their community in the aftermath, the passengers and locals alike process what’s happened while finding love, laughter, and new hope in the unlikely and lasting bonds that they forge.
The live performance of Come From Away was filmed at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in New York City, where the Broadway production is staged, for an audience that included 9/11 survivors and frontline workers.
The cast includes Petrina Bromley, Jenn Colella, De’Lon Grant, Joel Hatch, Tony LePage, Caesar Samayoa, Q. Smith, Astrid Van Wieren, Emily Walton, Jim Walton, Sharon Wheatley, and Paul Whitty.
Directed by Christopher Ashley. Produced by Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast, Chicago, Dreamgirls), Jennifer Todd (Across the Universe), Mark Gordon, Sue Frost & Randy Adam (Junkyard Dog Productions), eOne and Radical Media
