Come From Away is the smash-hit musical that has taken the world by storm, with continuing sold-out, record-breaking engagements on Broadway, in London’s West End, Melbourne, and on tour across North America.

This joyous musical shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 airplane passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Gander, Newfoundland in the wake of 9/11, and the small community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.

Written by Tony®-nominated Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and featuring Tony®-winning direction by Christopher AshleyCome From Away “takes you to a place you never want to leave!” (Newsweek).

A global phenomenon, and you can see why! - The Guardian
Joyous, foot-stomping and heart-warming! - The Toronto Star
It’s impossible not to be deeply moved by this savvy and thoroughly entertaining musical. A tonic for our times! - The Hollywood Reporter
It takes all of ten seconds to be in its generous embrace. You stay there for the next 100 minutes: laughing, tapping your foot, wiping away tears, feeling good about humanity – what a rare, welcome feeling that is these days. - The Times London
