“Come From Away” will close on Broadway in October.
Junkyard Dog Productions’ Randy Adams, Marleen and Kenny Alhadeff and Sue Frost announced Wednesday that the final performance will be Oct. 2.
At the time of closing, “Come From Away” will have played 1,670 performances and 25 previews.
The musical opened at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on March 12, 2017, following a preview period. Then, after the pandemic shutdown, “Come From Away” reopened on Sept. 21, 2021.
On June 15, the show is set to become the longest-running show in the Schoenfeld Theatre’s 105-year history.
Three other productions of the musical are currently running, including on London’s West End, a North American tour, and an Australian tour. “Come From Away” is set to return to Toronto in July 2024.
“When we first saw ‘Come From Away’ at NAMT, we were profoundly moved by this life-affirming musical set in the wake of 9/11, and the incredible artistry of Irene & David’s storytelling,” Junkyard Dog Productions said. “We were passionate to share this work with a wider audience and, throughout its development across North America, we were continually amazed by the overwhelming audience enthusiasm for this story about the power of human kindness. This journey, which started 7 years ago, has exceeded every expectation we could have ever had for ‘Come From Away.’ We are forever inspired by the unfailing generosity of the people of Newfoundland, and so grateful to the entire ‘Come From Away’ Broadway family, onstage and off, many of whom have been with us since our world premiere at La Jolla Playhouse and Seattle Repertory Theatre.”
