YOU GUYS! The "Come From Away" obsession continues! For today’s episode, I had the great honor of sitting down for a chat with the Irene Sankoff and David Hein who conceived the show and wrote the music, book, and lyrics. I could barely contain myself. The show, of course, is nominated for 7 Tony Awards this year including Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score for Irene and David. It's also nominated for the all important Best New Musical. It was so exciting to get to chat with them about how the show came to be and it’s journey from their living room to Broadway. I loved them SO much! Enjoy!
