About the Show
COME FROM AWAY takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that put their lives on hold and opened their homes to this world of strangers. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
Don’t miss this breathtaking show written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and directed by Tony®-nominee Christopher Ashley (Memphis), that The Washington Post hails as, “an exuberant antidote for what ails the American soul,” and Newsweek calls, “a funny, charming and uplifting celebration that does what all the best musicals do: takes you to a place you never want to leave.”
On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.
This show is 100 minutes with no intermission. Recommended for ages 10 and older.
