Our Review 5 / 5

Come from Away is a musical by Irene Sankoff and David Hein based on the events following the 9/11 attacks on America. That week, 38 planes were ordered to land in the small Canadian town of Gander, Newfoundland. This true story tells the tale of the town who kept 7,000 stranded visitors housed and fed following the biggest tragedy the US had seen. Come From Away tickets are on sale now.

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

The musical 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 and received critical acclaim, with The New York Times’s Ben Brantley calling 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 January 2019.

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 performance of Come From Away was also taped and released as a film on Apple TV+ on 10 September, 2021, right before the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

The original London cast of Come From Away featured Rachel Tucker as airline pilot Beverley Bass, among other characters. She was joined by David Shannon, Jenna Boyd, Nathanael Campbell, Clive Carter, Mary Doherty, Robert Hands, Helen Hobson, Jonathan Andrew Hume, Harry Morrison, Emma Salvo, and Cat Simmons.

Our Review of Come From Away


Come From Away lost out in the Tony race for most of the seven awards it was nominated for to Dear Evan Hansen, apart from Christopher Ashley who won the award for Best Director of a Musical. Both shows are coincidentally transferring to the West End this year in replica versions of their original Broadway productions, along with Waitress and On Your Feet. But Come From Away is in a category of its own: a genuinely original musical, based on real-life events that took place in... Read more

5 Questions from Over the Pond: Rachel Tucker & Jenn Colella
Wednesday, 24 April, 2019
It could be argued that no new West End musical has had a greater impact so far this year than Come From Away. Although the marketing budget in advance may have been dwarfed by such predecessors as Hamilton and The Book of Mormon, who previously crossed over the pond with the level of hype that most producers can only dream of, Come From Away has relied on its ever-growing and always gushing word of mouth to gather momentum at ...
