While Broadway remains dark, Entertainment One is bringing the musical “Come From Away” to audiences at home.

The company is producing and financing a live stage recording of the Tony Award-winning Broadway show, with plans for a September 2021 release. The filmed version, which will be recorded at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in May, will feature cast members from the Broadway production.

Set in the week following 9/11, “Come From Away” tells the true story of what happened when 38 planes — filled with 7,000 stranded passengers — were ordered to unexpectedly land in Canada’s small town of Gander in Newfoundland.

Kate Hudson Is Attracted to Musicians But Not Their ‘Lifestyle’

She has a type! Kate Hudson has been linked to many famous men over the years — but the actress admitted that she tends to be drawn to musicians, in particular.

French DJ David Guetta says fair if festivals require vaccinations

DUBAI (Reuters) -With the live music industry shut down by the pandemic, celebrated French DJ David Guetta said it would be fair for festivals in the future to restrict entry to those vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Guetta, 53, who said he has received the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, has urged fans to get vaccinated but says he understands and respects that it is a personal decision.

“I think it is absolutely fair. People have the right not to get vaccinated but they cannot impose on other people the risk of making them sick,” he told Reuters on Tuesday.

He also said it would be fair for cities and countries to restrict entry to those vaccinated too.

Globally, there have been at least 103,371,000 reported COVID-19 cases and 2,235,000 deaths caused by the disease so far.

In Guetta’s native France, one of the hardest-hit countries in Europe and in
