Come From Away opened at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville Tuesday, Oct. 26 to open the 2021-22 Broadway season. Actor Julie Johnson joins Assistant Features Editor Jocelyn Murphy to talk about returning to the road, the moving musical and the true stories that inspired it.
 
On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, the United States airways were closed to all incoming flights, leading to some 7,000 passengers on 38 planes diverting to the tiny town of Gander, Newfoundland. Come From Away shares the stories of these strangers brought together from around the world and the islanders who took them in for five days following the tragedy.
