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.

Outstanding in Every Way

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.

Sue &
Outstanding Play About a Tough Event in History

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!

Great show - A little too much singing

Can’t fault the actors, they were brilliant. Albeit, the show contained a too much singing for me, I like a split between acting and singing and this was loaded with singing, the whole show is like one big song. Great story, great narrative but if you prefer more dialogue, maybe it isn’t for you. Also there wasn’t an interval :(.
