Come From Away, Broadway’s new “must-see musical” (NPR), has been welcomed with open arms and major acclaim!
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.
“Critics’ Pick! The catharsis we need in this American moment.”- Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Broadway’s best surprise of the season! Every New Yorker must see this show.” – New York Post

Following sold-out, record-breaking, critically acclaimed world premiere engagements at La Jolla Playhouse and Seattle Repertory Theatre and presented in 2016 by Ford’s Theatre, Come From Away landed on the "Best Theater of 2015" lists in the Los Angeles Times, Seattle Times, San Diego Union Tribune, and Times of San Diego. Charles McNulty of the Los Angeles Times called the show "An affecting, stirring and unpretentious new musical. Christopher Ashley's production lets the simple goodness of ordinary people outshine sensational evil," and Bob Verini of Variety raved, "Superb! Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein have forged a moving, thoroughly entertaining tribute to international amity and the indomitable human spirit." Peter Marks of the Washington Post called Come From Away, "a heartwarming, compelling and refreshing musical packed with goodwill. The score has an infectious vitality. My heart leaped several times."
