The scenic designer of Come From Away, Beowulf Boritt, weaves an breathtaking tale through imagery and set design. Echoing to the stunning utilization of the turn table by David Korins in Hamilton, Boritt somehow manages to convince the audience that two rows of chairs paired with a rotating turn table are, in fact, an airplane. The clever utilization of few set pieces paired with highest level acting helps viewers’ suspension of disbelief as they are transported into the haunting and harrowing tale of 6,500 passengers who survived the skies of September 11. So if you want to watch all the thrills, highs, lows and excitement of a live theater show, come to the breathtaking Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in New York City for a night of stunning entertainment.
