Come From Away is a brand new musical, fresh from Broadway. It has already caused a stir. Now this epic multi-award-winner of a musical theatre masterpiece is transferring to the glittering West End, a show that has gathered so much critical acclaim on Broadway that it is fast achieving legendary status. This is a truly thrilling, uplifting story that sheds new light on one of the most terrifying events of the century, 9/11.
Welcome to a totally brilliant Canadian musical that's – bravely – based on the events of September 11th, when the World Trade Center's two towers were destroyed by terrorist attacks. The piece goes deep to the heart of a small community that was completely blown off its feet by the shocking events that took place.
The plot? Come From Away takes you far, far away to the little northern town of Gander, in Newfoundland, where the local people prepare to welcome seven thousand stranded air flight passengers. As the sense of threat and unease grows and the tension increases, new friendships are created, ultimately revealing the light behind the darkness. Nerves might be as tense as a wire, but as the people's gratitude for survival grows, new relationships are forged. And as the music soars, all the culture clashes and differences of opinion are finally set aside. We're all humans. And it feels magical.
The book, music and lyrics are by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, with songs including Welcome to the Rock, Me and the Sky and Something’s Missing, as well as a host more gorgeous Canadian folk songs. Tony Award-winner Christopher Ashley directs, a man with plenty of previous Broadway credits under his belt including Memphis, Xanadu and The Rocky Horror Show. Set design comes from Beowulf Boritt, costume design from Toni-Leslie James, lighting design by Howell Binkley and sound design by Gareth Owen.
The musical has been awarded multiple Drama Desk Awards, including the award for Outstanding Musical. No wonder when it's such an extraordinary, breath-taking story. The entertainment kicks off in February 2019, when the production plays at the magnificent Phoenix Theatre following a run at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin between December 2018 and January 2019.

I remember the very time this happened. I heard about the Newfoundland town that helped; loved to see the story on the stage. It should never be forgotten.

Upbeat little known true story
This is a wonderful show that leaves one feeling there is hope for humanity. I don’t know why this wonderful incident in the midst of a very grim time is not better known as it is full of generosity.

Brilliant story, great performances, funny and moving.
Beverley London Box Office customer
A perfect night out
The best musical I’ve ever seen. Doesn’t have the familiar favourites like biographical musicals such as The Jersey boys but the standard of acting, musicianship, stage design and story line leaves other productions in the shade. You will laugh and cry and leave the theatre feeling the world might not be so screwed up after all. Writers Irene Sankoff and David Hein wanted theatre to change the world. I think they succeeded.
Isabel London Box Office customer
This show is absolutely fantastic, you don't know whether to laugh or cry, what an amazing story

Interesting true life story, well played & performed, funny & moving with good songs (liked the celtic sound). The only show I've been to that had a100% standing ovation at it's conclusion! And loved the band rocking the joint at the end!
Philip London Box Office customer
Should be mandatory for all to experience.
From the opening scene to the final goodbye, non-stop love, emotion and fabulous music. I was happily exhausted. I could never imagine something so wonderful coming out of one of the worst events in modern times.
John London Box Office customer
Having lived in Newfoundland for 30 years found the characters and situations very true to life and the local accents spot on. Brilliant production and outstanding cast.
Deborah London Box Office customer
I was laughing and crying from start to finish - phenomenal!
I have seen a lot of shows and I am a musical theatre student, so I pretty much spend my life watching, doing and learning about theatre. This was by far the best show I’ve ever seen. The fact it is based on true events makes the story even more moving. The music is incredible, the story was both funny and heart wrenching, the choreography and movement is so clever and the performances were stunning. Overall I cannot rate this show enough.
Natalie London Box Office customer

The sets and costumes are minimal but the story shines through! It got a heartfelt standing ovation on the night I attended, and the band were brilliant. One qualm - the accents were a bit variable!
Rosie London Box Office customer
Great evening out
vicki London Box Office customer
Incredible must see show.
If you want something upbeat, which is life affirming. This is a true story told warts and all, they don't shy away from the hard or the uncomfortable. It is a human story and it is amazing. Loved it.

There was a time when we Brits lead the field with groundbreaking new musicals on both sides of the Atlantic. In the 1980s Cameron Macintosh, Andrew Lloyd Webber and pals ruled the world with mega hits like CATS, LES MIS, MISS SAIGON, PHANTOM etc. Those shows are all still around of course but they’re beginning to look distinctly old-school.
