‘Come from Away’
On Feb. 1, Boomer had the opportunity to attend opening night of the musical “Come from Away,” part of the 2021-2022 Broadway in Richmond series at Altria Theater. A small but enthusiastic cast portrayed passengers that were stranded as the 9/11 terrorist attack led to a grounding of all commercial air travel in U.S. airspace, and the people of a small town in Newfoundland, Canada, that welcomed 7,000 stranded passengers.
The Richmond performance of this traveling Broadway musical extends through Feb. 6.
