About Come From Away Tickets
Come From Away description
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.
Who is this show for?
As long as you're aged ten or more, you'll find this exceptional musical absolutely fascinating.

This is one of the best shows that I have been to in a long time. It was POWERFUL, EMOTIONAL, SAD , HAPPY and HEARTFELT all at the same time. Totally immersed in the story with an immense sense of pride for these actors who portrayed a story of true human kindness in a worldwide tragedy . Don’t miss it!!

My main criticism is of the delay in being admitted to my seat. I printed a copy of the e-mail confirmation and a friend also put a copy on her smart phone for me. There was nothing in any correspondence to say anything more had to be done than show both on reaching the theatre. Instead, I was directed to the Box Office and almost missed the beginning of the show whilst I waited for them to sort it out. Something must be done to improve the mechanics of this.

The upbeat nature of the show, based on the true story, just highlighted the better side of human nature. It was poignant, funny and very positive. The tempo was non-stop, the music was easy to follow - I loved that the musicians were on stage & became part of a couple of scenes - the staging was simple, but very effective - clever use of the revolve, the lyrics were clever, there was pathos and understanding and mis-understanding, all brilliantly interwoven into a seamless whole. REALLY ENJOYED IT!

Revived the memories of those days. And as a Canadian makes me proud of the way the Newfies came to the rescue with enormous generosity. The music was authentic Newfoundlander. The small cast (12) filled so many roles, shifted seamlessly among the various characters' accents, and even caught the essence of the Newfie accent and dialects.

This show is incredible, the story is original (and based on true events), it's breath-taking, emotional and thought-provoking. You couldn't ask for more. I've now seen it twice, once from the Circle and last night from in the Stalls. The acting is outstanding, with all of the cast playing two contrasting parts, with minimal costume tweaks. Both times there has been a standing ovation, and I've heard, from the folks at the Phoenix Theatre Arts Club (situated below the the Phoenix Theatre where the show is hosted), that there is a standing ovation every night and I totally believe it. See it for yourself and you'll see why.

This show was an emotional roller-coaster for me yet I would go see it again in a heartbeat. My secretary lost a nephew in Tower 2 and I have seen his name at the recessed pond there now; my wife and I were in NYC 4 weeks after the towers collapsed and saw the smoldering clouds of smoke still rising. This play told such a poignant story of what the people of Gander, Newfoundland did and how they impacted 7,000 lives for those four days. When the one actress playing a pilot role thanked people for flying we had many United employees do the same thing when we flew to Australia the first week of November 2001. I laughed, I cried, and had such a wonderful evening. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I hope more people will take the opportunity to see this show. At the end everyone, and I mean everyone, in the theater were on their feet right up until the band stopped playing. BRAVO! and much success!
