  1. I had the opportunity to see “Come From Away” on Broadway. I enjoyed the play’s spotlight on Beverley Bass, the first female pilot at American Airlines. The musical is nominated for several Tony Awards.

    1. Marla, your blog was how I heard about the show!!! I am really hoping to make it to New York this summer to see it.
