A couple of weeks ago, we brought you right into the heart of the launch party for “Come From Away” held at Canada House. The Broadway transfer was just about to start rehearsing before heading off to Dublin for an “Off Off Off West End” run.
And this week, we return to Canada House to the official press event before tonight’s official opening.
And just one of the many, many reasons you should go watch this show is to see the powerhouse performance of this week’s guest, Rachel Tucker. Rachel is a West End and Broadway star, appearing in “We Will Rock You” and others here in London as well as Sting’s “The Last Ship” on Broadway… and she played Elphaba in “Wicked” on both sides of the Atlantic. This girl can absolutely sing! And what’s more, she’s just lovely to meet in person.
We got the opportunity to talk to her about her role as “Beverley / Annette and others”. It’s a marvellous track, and we sat down to talk about just what it meant to be part of this amazing story that is SO much more than a 9/11 musical.
