If you have been patiently waiting for Broadway shows in Halifax, the time has arrived!
It has been announced that nine-time Tony Award Winner for Best Musical, The Book of Mormon and Come From Away, directed by Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley will be debuting at Halifax’s Scotiabank Centre.
The New York Times calls The Book of Mormon, “the best musical of this century.” The Washington Post said, “It is the kind of evening that restores your faith in musicals.” Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show calls it “Genius. Brilliant. Phenomenal.”
Come from Away, a New York Times Critics’ Pick, takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
The Book of Mormon debuts Tuesday July 18 – Thursday July 20. Come From Away debuts Tuesday, November 14 to Thursday November 16.
