Come From Away - The Hit Musical Based on the Remarkable True Story

The global sensation Come From Away returns to the historic Royal Alexandra Theatre — where it all began with the pre-Broadway engagement and the record-breaking Canadian production that played for nearly three sold-out years (before the pandemic pre-emptively cut its run short).

This New York Times Critic's Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. 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 musical written by Tony®-nominated Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and featuring Tony®-winning direction by Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, “It takes you to a place you never want to leave!”

On 9/11, the world stopped.

On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

 

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
