54 Below

Written by Florida native Donald Rupe, From Here explores what life was like in Orlando during the aftermath of the shooting at Pulse nightclub in 2016. Centered amidst the fictionalized story of Daniel, a thirty-something mess on his journey toward self-fulfillment, everything stops as one tight-knit community of friends processes a tragedy in their hometown. It’s a heartwarming and often funny story of love, memory, family, and chosen family.

From Here debuted in Orlando in 2019 and has since become a musical love-letter to a healing community. Each year, the musical has been presented in June to commemorate the tragedy, and after years of development will debut in NYC right here at 54 Below.

Blake Aburn (originated the role of Daniel, a performer at Walt Disney World)
