‘Come From Away’ to Close, the Latest Broadway Show to End Run
The musical, which opened in 2017, is the third to announce a closing in two days,
as many shows struggle in a pandemic-softened marketplace.
“Come From Away,” the inspirational musical about a remote
Canadian community that rallied to support thousands of stranded
air travelers after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, will end its run on Broadway in October.
The musical, which has been a hit on Broadway and has been successfully staged around the world
is the third show to announce a plan to close in the last two days,
as it becomes clear that with New York City still attracting fewer tourists than it did
before the pandemic, there are not enough patrons to support all the productions now running.
