Swept Away (Broadway, Longacre Theatre, 2024) | Playbill

Swept Away


From the chart-topping folk-rock band The Avett Brothers comes a tale of shipwreck, salvation and brotherhood set on the high seas.

After sold-out runs from coast to coast,
Swept Away storms Broadway this fall.


When a violent storm sinks their whaling ship off the coast of New Bedford, Mass., the four survivors face a reckoning: how far will they go to stay alive? And can they live with the consequences? With music and lyrics from The Avett Brothers, whose 2004 “Mignonette” was inspired by an 1884 shipwreck and the struggle of four men to survive, Swept Away is an electrifying, soul-stirring new musical exploring how facing tragedy can open the door to forgiveness… if only we’ll let it.

Information is subject to change prior to opening night.

Performances are scheduled to begin October 29, 2024.
