There's nothing in between her and the sky! Jenn Colella, an original cast member of Come From Away on Broadway, will return to the production this summer. Fresh off a star turn in the Off-Broadway musical Suffs, Colella will play a limited engagement as Captain Beverley Bass/Annette and others from June 21 to August 7.

Colella received a 2017 Tony nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical and a Drama Desk Award win for playing Bass when the show opened that year. Colella left Come From Away in 2019, and she now returns to replace Becky Gulsvig, who departs the production on June 19.

Both Colella and Gulsvig are filling in while Rachel Tucker, who has played the role since March 2020, is on hiatus. She rejoins the company August 9.

In addition, original cast member Petrina Bromley, who plays Bonnie and others, will be on hiatus from June 21 to September 27. Sharone Sayegh, who has played the role on the Come From Away North American tour, will assume the role.

Come From Away tells the true story of the residents of Gander, Newfoundland who welcomed thousands of rerouted plane travelers in the wake of 9/11. The town's population nearly doubled overnight, but the residents immediately mobilized to house, clothe, feed, and support them all, and the passengers and residents formed lifelong bonds that helped them through that time of darkness and uncertainty. The musical plays the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and is a seven-time Tony nominee.
