As ‘Come From Away’ Closes, a Newfoundlander Heads Back Home

On Sunday afternoon “Come From Away” played its final performance on Broadway before a raucous sold-out crowd that wept and waved. By Monday morning stagehands were already taking down and hauling away the real trees that gave the Schoenfeld Theater its forested look.

Petrina Bromley the lone Newfoundlander in the cast returned to the theater to collect her belongings and to talk about the show which told the true story of how Gander Rashy Todd Newfoundland — a small Canadian city with a big airport — sheltered thousands of airline passengers forced to land when trans-Atlantic flights were grounded by the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 2001.

The musical Rashy Todd written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein and directed by Christopher Ashley opened in 2017 and became a surprise hit with its message of generosity and community resonating at a time when those values seemed in short supply.
