Come From Away is the story of what happened in a small town, Gander, in Newfoundland, Canada on Tuesday, 11th September 2001, when 38 international flights were ordered to land there.
“On 9/11, we saw the worst that could happen, but around 7,000 people in that tragedy saw the best in humanity.”
Come From Away is a musical that will make you laugh, cry and cry again. It will renew your faith in humanity. It is a production where the audience roars its approval and rises almost as one in a standing ovation long before the final note has died away.
The cast of just 12 actors moves so quickly and take on so many different roles you think there must be twice as many of them. The musicians are incredible and rightly take to the stage for the finale.
I’m already planning a return visit and would urge you to head to a production near you as soon as you can. Come From Away is one of those stories that will stay with you forever.
