Rachel Tucker to lead West End cast of Come From Away
Written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, the musical follows the events following 9/11, when a number of planes were forced to ground in a small Canadian town in Newfoundland called Gander. The town, which had a population of around 9,600, welcomed over 7,000 stranded passengers, with most residents feeding, clothing and putting a roof over their heads.
Rachel Tucker, who starred as Elphaba in the West End production of Wicked, will star in the production. She will be joined by Jenna Boyd, Nathaneal Campbell, Clive Carter, Mary Doherty, Robert Hands, Helen Hobson, Jonathan Andrew Hume, Harry Morrison, Emma Salvo, David Shannon and Cat Simmons.

In a four-star review of the Broadway premiere in March 2017, our partner site New York Theatre Guide said: “the spirit that is on that stage sweeps past the footlights and scoops everyone in the audience up into its arms.”
Come From Away tickets are available now.
