It’s curtain up on another episode of West of Broadway, a celebration of musical theatre in Los Angeles with celebrity publicist and theatre veteran Will Armstrong https://www.instagram.com/willarmstrongpr/, along with radio host and theatre enthusiast Lara Scott https://www.instagram.com/larascottmedia/,
On this episode we discuss the first national tour of the tony award-winning Broadway smash COME FROM AWAY which opened its los angeles engagement on November 28th at the Ahmanson theatre…and we were there!!!
The story is centered around 9/11….and yet there are some very funny moments…it’s really beautifully done and not disrespectful at all…everyone that I could see around us seemed old enough to remember 9/11, and we all have so many stories around that—after the show, you and I were talking about where we were and what we were doing when we found out the first plane hit the world trade center…so there is a lot of emotion around this. And ultimately, the message is that out of tragedy something beautiful can be created.
We are convinced you cannot see this show and NOT be changed when you walk out.
All right let us know what you think after you see COME FROM AWAY: tix are available at https://www.centertheatregroup.org/ (and theatre is spelled T-H-E-A-T-R-E), and it’s playing through January 6th.
