A free one-night-only concert version of the Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical “Come From Away” on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial
Members of the Come From Away company will star in this 100-minute concert in honor of the 20th anniversary of 9/11. The concert at the Lincoln Memorial marks the return of live performance for Ford’s Theatre and the first time since March 2020 that music from the musical will be performed publicly for a live audience in the United States. The event features modified concert staging with minimal props and costumes. The performance is offered rain or shine.
Come From Away tells the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers on September 11, 2001, and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them—spurring unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances. Featuring a rousing score of folk and rock, Come From Away honors the better angels of our nature, revealing hope and humanity in a time of darkness.
Prior to its Broadway run, Come From Awayhad a sold-out, record-breaking East Coast premiere at Ford’s Theatre in September 2016.
Tickets are not required. The event features modified concert staging with minimal props and costumes. The performance is offered rain or shine.
Length: 100 minutes with no intermission.
Recommended for ages 10 and older.
