Broadway in Richmond is back for its second show this season with the true story “Come From Away”.

“And that’s a really exciting story what happened on 9/11 when all of those planes had to land somewhere and it’s about a true story about a community in New Finland who took in many of these passengers from all different kinds of walks of life, ethnicity, religion and how they all came together to get through some very trying times," says Cindy Creasy, with Broadway In Richmond.

Come From Away runs from February 1st through February 6 at the Altria Theatre.

Broadway in Richmond’s next show is The Lion King March 9th through March 20th, followed by Fiddler on the Roof from April 5th to April 10th and Cats April 15 and 16.
