A concert staging of Come From Away will be performed at the National Mall in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., September 10 at 6 PM. The presentation is free to all with no tickets required and offered in honor of the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

The sung-through musical will be performed in its entirety, directed by Paul Tetreault for Ford’s Theatre, which celebrates the return to in-person presentations with this concert.

“This is a celebration of coming back,” Tetreault said. “It’s an acknowledgment of 9/11, which for me was a time this country was really together and united. And we’re so divided now. There’s not a better story to tell to have people acknowledge that in darkness, there can be hope, there can be the promise of a better tomorrow.”

Come From Away tells the true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the Newfoundland town that welcomed them in the immediate aftermath of September 11.
