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 Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein. The direction is by Tony Award nominee Christopher Ashley (Memphis) and the choreography by fellow Tony nominee Kelly Devine (Rocky).
Winner of six Tony Awards, Stephen Sondheim's groundbreaking musical is a brilliant and wildly funny look at relationships.

Dear Evan Hansen is a new, deeply personal musical about living and lying in the world today.

Another Obie winner, Steven Levenson, wrote the musical's book; the music and lyrics are by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Tony Award nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal) directs.
This musical journey takes audiences back in time — specifically, to when "soul" emerged as a style of music. Berry Gordy's Motown label and his studio band the Funk Brothers helped popularize soul music, as did Stax Records' Booker T. & the MG's. Before long, James Brown became the "Godfather of Soul" and Aretha Franklin its queen.
Now vocalists Prentiss McNeil (of the Drifters) and Bruce Wayne (of the Midnight Movers, Wilson Pickett's backing band) lead this classic soul revue. Their energy is unmatched; their showmanship, breathtaking. A Decade of Soul is a passion-driven tribute; the passion may even drive audience members out of their seats and onto their feet.
