4.5

Harnessing the raw emotional power of a Broadway show, the musical Come From Away excels at delivering a poignant and soul-stirring production. Directed by Christopher Ashley, Come From Away won the Tony award for Best Direction and is a peek into the real-life story of 7,000 passengers who found home and warmth in the town of Gander during the 9/11 attacks.

Why Watch Come From Away

Come From Away premiered on Broadway in March, 2017 and has received audience appreciation as well as critical acclaim. Written by husband-wife couple Irene Sankoff and David Hein, the musical is based on a true-story. It succeeds to highlight the collective force of humanity, even in the direst of circumstances such as the tragedy of 9/11. With rousing music and evocative performances Come From Away pulls at the strings of audience member’s hearts.

The Story

Come From Away is based on a real life incident during the 9/11 attacks in the US. When the government shut off the airspace, 38 passenger jets carrying over 7,000 passengers were stranded in the town of Gander in Newfoundland, Canada. A heart-warming display of Canadian hospitality, this is the story of those passengers and their interactions with the townspeople during the traumatic events that affected all of America.

Being a Canadian, the play was definitely on my list but I couldn't make it until I was in New York some time ago... My first Broadway experience turned out to be a life changer. If you live in the city or are visiting for a couple of days, this play should definitely be on your go-to list in New York. Lovely musical!

What a lovely venue, Come From Away was backed with soulful music and score. I had no idea what the show was about until I walked in that evening... safe to say that I'm stunned and moved. Do go for Come From Away before its too late. A must watch for every American citizen!
