‘Come From Away’ Writing Duo Highlight Their 3 Favorite True Story-Inspired Musicals

Irene Sankoff and David Hein wrote the book and music for "Come From Away." It's a new Broadway musical based on a true tale that unfolded in the tiny town of Gander, Newfoundland. During the 9/11 attacks, 38 planes bound for New York had to land in Gander instead. So, the locals had to care for thousands of stranded passengers from around the world. Listen as they share a little more about their musical, before listing their favorite musicals of the stage and screen based on true tales.
