As we all know, “Come From Away” has been a revelation on stage playing to rave reviews around the world.
Those hoping to see a movie adaptation of the musical are going to have to wait.
Plans to adapt ‘Come From Away’ into a big-screen movie musical have been indefinitely placed on hold.
David Hein, one of the Canadian co-creators behind the Broadway hit, lays the blame for the hold on the pandemic.
He says rising production costs and closed borders made filming on the East Coast too big of a challenge.
While there’s no time frame for when production could happen, Hein and co-creator Irene Sankoff still hope to see their production one day on screen.
