Come From Away began previews in the West End on 30th January, ahead of an official opening on 18th February. The musical received a flurry of five-star reviews, with LondonTheatre.co.uk complimenting its feel as a "little show with a big heart... It's a show with an impact that's difficult to describe: it feels like it creeps up on you unawares, before flooring you with emotion".
