Rachel Tucker performs a medley of Come From Away songs in this incredible video.
Rachel, who currently leads the original London cast of new musical Come From Away, belts out Me And The Sky and Somewhere In The Middle Of Nowhere.
With a score and book written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, Come From Away proved a huge hit on Broadway before transferring to the West End in 2019.
The award winning play shares the touching real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.
Tucker says: “It’s really a story about in tragic times how humanity will always be the winner. It’s a beautiful, heart-warming, heartfelt, joyful story of the best of humanity.”
Speaking about her character pilot Beverley Bass, she added: “[Beverley] knew she wanted to be a pilot from a very young age and what I love was that even through all the nos she got, all the knock backs, she eventually got a job doing her passion, her love, flying planes.
“I love telling this strong woman story, it comes from deep within.”
Come From Away opened in London in January 2019 and is currently playing at the Phoenix Theatre.
Tucker is joined on the current Come From Away 2019 cast by Jenna Boyd, Nathanael Campbell, Clive Carer, Mary Doherty, Robert Hands, Helen Hobson, Jonathan Andrew Hume, Harry Morrison, Emma Salvo, David Shannon and Cat Simmons.
