They will be joined by  Mark Dugdale, Bob Harms, Kiara Jay, Kirsty Malpass, Tania Mathurin, Alexander McMorran, Brandon Lee Sears and Jennifer Tierney.

COME FROM AWAY has a book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein and picked up seven Tony Award nominations, winning one for Best Direction. It also won three Drama Desk Awards, and continues to run at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.
