Production company RadicalMedia, which is responsible for the filmed version of Broadway’s Hamiltonthe final performance of Rent, and Shrek the musical has begun filming Broadway's mega-hit COME FROM AWAY at Broadway's Schoenfeld Theatre in May 2021.

Featured in the filmed production is the Broadway cast that played the Schoenfeld Theatre at the time the production closed last year due to the ongoing pandemic, along with Tony-Nominated actress Jenn Colella.

The filming is produced and financed by Entertainment One (eOne) which holds the rights for the filmed production. eOne first acquired film rights to the story in 2017; it was originally supposed to be recorded as a feature film, with Sankhoff and Hein penning the script.

"We are thrilled to be joining this extended Gander community to continue to share Come From Away's beautiful story of togetherness through a filmed version of the musical, particularly at a time when live theater is shuttered in much of the world," said Dave Sirulnick, Executive Producer of RadicalMedia.

COME FROM AWAY is the breathtaking musical that reminds you of what good the human spirit is capable of. Written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and directed by Christopher Ashley, this musical shines a lot on the best of what we are capable in the absolute worst of times.
