Lauren is currently working with Junkyard Dog Productions, the Executive Producing team for the new musical COME FROM AWAY.
2017 TONY AWARD WINNING PRODUCTION
Best Direction of a Musical - Christopher Ashley
COME FROM AWAY is the breathtaking new musical that played record-breaking engagements in La Jolla and Seattle. Written by Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein (My Mother's Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding), this is the stunning production from Tony nominated director Christopher Ashley (Memphis) that the Los Angeles Times calls “an affecting and stirring new musical.”
On September 11th, 38 planes with 6,579 passengers were stranded in a remote town in Newfoundland. The locals opened their hearts and homes, hosting this international community of strangers for a week – spurring unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances.
On September 11th, the world stopped. On September 12th, their stories moved us all.
“A musical can’t vanquish our fears, but what COME FROM AWAY does splendidly is give us a breather as it honors our capacity for humble goodness and mutual empathy in the shadow of faith-shattering evil.”
- The Seattle Times
