Come From Away the Musical exults Latino Talent for the kick-off of Hispanic Heritage Month last night on Broadway.
iVoice Communications proudly coordinated this event that honored Latino talents on Broadway like Lillian Colon, the first Latina Rockette And R.Evolucion Latina, a nonprofit organization that supports children in performing arts.
This fantastic event was honored to welcome the presence of Ambassadors, General Consuls, and diplomats from many of the General Consulates from Latin America and Spain. There were many great laughs as well as tears at this sold-out event.
COME FROM AWAY was originally co-produced in 2015 by La Jolla Playhouse and Seattle Repertory Theatre, and presented in 2016 by Ford’s Theatre in Washington, DC and Mirvish Productions at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto, CA. COME FROM AWAY (NAMT Festival 2013) was originally developed at the Canadian Music Theatre Project, Michael Rubinoff Producer, Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, Canada and was further developed at Goodspeed Musicals’ Festival of New Artists, in East Haddam, CT. The Canada Council for the Arts, The Ontario Arts Council, and the Fifth Avenue Theatre in Seattle WA also provided development support.
