“Inspired by real-life accounts from the residents of a small Newfoundland town, who during the chaos of closed airspace during the 9/11 crisis invited 7,000 strangers from 38 diverted planes into their community, this unflashy, quiet musical is an unpretentious joy. It could be the West End show we all need at the moment. If Neil LaBute’s post-9/11 play, The Mercy Seat, suggested that in a crisis people take the opportunity to behave badly, then Come From Away suggests the opposite and that community spirit wins out. It was a sleeper hit but one that won four Oliviers prior to the pandemic, and it might just be the unassuming intimate tonic we all need right now.”

Overview

Winner of every major UK award for Best New Musical, Come From Away shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small
Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.

As uneasiness turned into trust and music soared into the night, gratitude grew into friendships and their stories became a celebration of hope, humanity and unity.

Awarded the Tony® for Best Direction of a Musical, Christopher Ashley’s production guides audiences through a colourful and spirited cast of characters, brought to life by Olivier Award winning writing team Irene Sankoff and David Hein.

Critic reviews

Revisited in the wake of Covid, the wholesome, warming Canadian musical makes real-time sense of a moment of all-consuming global upset

· The Telegraph

A flight from our troubles into total joy

· The Times

Incredibly moving and uplifting Canadian musical based on a true story of kindness

· The Stage

This 9/11-set musical is a gently miraculous masterpiece

· Time Out

It's the mark of a great show that it seems to speak directly to the present moment, even if that moment is years after its original creation

· Broadway World

It's a show with an impact that’s difficult to describe: it feels like it creeps up on you unawares, before flooring you with emotion

· London Theatre

It has lost none of its power following this extended hiatus

· Musical Theatre Review

A heart-swelling burst of joy, this Canadian gift is the musical that reminds us, even in the darkest of times, why life is worth living, and is unlikely to leave a dry eye in the house

· Theatre Weekly

This is a moving, irresistible show that unapologetically champions kindness

· Financial Times

In the end its defining features are charm, energy and a real generosity of spirit, and audiences are left with a nagging question: in a situation like the one the people of Gander faced, would we do the same?

· Evening Standard

A necessary corrective to our traumatic times

· Arts Desk

I think in a time of true panic when we are all searching for any source of human support, the impact of Come From Away will feel far stronger today in London

· West End Wilma

Most importantly of all, it has a feelgood factor that simply doesn't let-up. In divided times, that's a powerful antidote indeed

· WhatsOnStage

Relentless niceness in tale of post-9/11 Canadian kindness

· The Guardian

It would be impossible to imagine a more complete antidote to Neil LaBute's 2002 play 'The Mercy Seat' than this warm musical by Irene Sankoff and David Hein
