About Come From Away

Rejoice in the compassion and kindness of humans in the Olivier Award-winning musical Come from Away at the Phoenix Theatre. See Come From Away before its final performance in January 2023.

What is Come From Away about?

Immediately after the 9/11 attacks, 38 planes were ordered to land in the small Canadian town of Gander, Newfoundland. The Come From Away musical tells the true stories of 7,000 stranded visitors that were housed and fed following the biggest tragedy the US had seen.

Is Come From Away a true story?

Come From Away saw Sankoff and Hein travel to the Newfoundland town of Gander on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and learned of the kindness of its townspeople. They felt like their stories had to be told and wrote a positive, upbeat musical to celebrate the residents. They modestly set out to write a musical they wanted high school kids to perform, rather than aspiring for a Broadway musical.

Come From Away opened on Broadway at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in 2017 following runs in Seattle, Washington DC, and Toronto. It was nominated for seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score of a musical, and it won for Best Direction of a Musical. The New York Times’s Ben Brantley called it a "big bearhug of a musical."

Following a short run in Dublin at the end of 2018, the show transferred to London’s Phoenix Theatre in early 2019, beginning previews on 30 Jan. 2019. Come From Away won four Olivier Awards in 2019, including Best New Musical.

On the back of the success of the musical, Sankoff and Hein are writing a film adaptation of the show, set to be produced by Mark Gordon and directed by Christopher Ashley. A Come From Away musical film was released on Apple TV+ on 10 Sept. 2021, before the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

How long is Come From Away?

The Come From Away musical runs for 1 hour and 40 minutes. Matinee performances begin at 2:30pm and evening performances begin at 7:30pm.
