About the Show
‘Come From Away’ is a deeply moving and touching story of human kindness, heroic hospitality and basic humanity in the face of perilous times. The 9/11 terrorist attacks shocked not only America but the entire world and left people scared, uncertain and full of disbelief. During these difficult times, the people of Gander managed to muster up the courage and valour to welcome 7000 strangers into their town and homes. Cultures clashed, tension and apprehension were in the air and mistrust was at its peak, but in the end compassion, empathy and kind-heartedness prevailed. This musical beautifully captures humanity and celebrates the indomitable human spirit. Despite the subtle differences in the way we look, where we come from or the languages we speak in, at the end of the day we all belong to one, big global family.
The show opened on Broadway in March 2017 and from its very first show has been a raging success. Although ‘Come From Away’ hasn’t performed on London’s West End, given its track record on Broadway, you can be absolutely sure that this musical will be received well by the ardent West End fans.

‘Come From Away’ beautifully recounts the true story of the people of Gander, Newfoundland and how they welcomed 7000 stranded travellers from all over the world, in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. In the week following the attacks, the US Government closed off US airspaces, forcing 38 international aircrafts to change their routes and land unexpectedly at Gander in Newfoundland, a small town with a minuscule population. The Gander townspeople, despite being afraid and anxious themselves, put their inhibitions aside and welcomed the passengers, who were terrified themselves and made them feel safe and comfortable.
‘Come From Away’ shows the hospitality, benevolence and kindness of the people of Gander and paints a beautiful picture of how unity in the face of adversity always triumphs. As one writer beautifully put it - “On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.”

“Try, if you must, to resist the gale of good will that blows out of "Come From Away," the big bearhug of a musical that opened on Sunday night at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater. But even the most stalwart cynics may have trouble staying dry-eyed during this portrait of heroic hospitality under extraordinary pressure...this Canadian-born production, written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein and directed by Christopher Ashley, is as honorable in its intentions as it is forthright in its sentimentality.”
– The New York Times
“As long as Come From Away is playing on Broadway, I will recommend it to everyone. Everyone.”
– Broadway World
