Come From Away Timeline

It took almost a decade from conception for Come From Away to become an international smash hit. That’s about average for a musical, which is considered to be among the most complex of theatrical forms to create because it relies on many different layers of collaboration amongst a small army of artists. For the sake of brevity, the timeline here is focused mostly on the show’s Toronto life. Missing are some major milestones such as the musical’s European premieres (in Dublin and London), its Australian debut in Melbourne, and the launch of its North American touring company, which has already crisscrossed the continent and will continue to do so when it is safe for theatres to reopen after the pandemic.
