A podcast about the creative process & people whose lives depend on it
Not just a theatre podcast, nor a music or comedy podcast, I talk to creative people about the intersection of daily life in society and their creative muse.
Irene Sankoff and David Hein, went from the Toronto Fringe Festival to creating a the hit Broadway show “Come From Away”.
Their Fringe show, “My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding,” attracted the attention of producer David Mirvish who brought it from the Fringe to a larger theatre.
Mirvish also discovered “The Drowsy Chaperone” at the Toronto Fringe, so the pressure for “Wiccan Wedding” to succeed was high. Things went well with that production and soon they were working on “Come From Away.”
“Come From Away” is a musical set in the town of Gander, Newfoundland, in the week following the September 11 attacks, when 38 planes were ordered to land unexpectedly in the small town.
