Come From Away

1hr. 40min.


Winner of a 2017 Tony Award!

It's been called the "edge of the world." The weather is wild, but the locals never lack for warmth. And it's here, in Newfoundland, that a remote town became the epicenter of a remarkable true story filled with unusual characters, unexpected camaraderie, and uncommon generosity.

That story began in the wake of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Flights had to be rerouted, and 38 of them, carrying a total of 6,579 passengers, were grounded near this Newfoundland town. The locals put their lives on hold and opened their homes to a world of strangers. In a heartbeat, the town's population doubled. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

Come From Away, which tells the story of those passengers and that town, is a new musical written by Tony Award nominees (and Canadians) Irene Sankoff and David Hein. The direction is by Tony winner Christopher Ashley and the choreography by Tony nominee Kelly Devine (Rocky).
