What’s Come From Away about?

Winner of 4 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, Come From Away has taken the West End by storm. Playing to standing ovations at every performance, Come From Away continues sold-out, record-breaking engagements on Broadway, in Canada and Australia, as well as here in London’s beautiful Phoenix Theatre.

Come From Away is an uplifting, heart breaking, but ultimately joyful celebration of the human spirit. It’s the real-life story of 7,000 air passengers who were stranded in Gander, a tiny Newfoundland town, when North American airspace was shut down in the wake of 9/11. The people of Gander rallied as this tiny community came to the aid of these ‘come from aways’, putting their own lives on hold to welcome the world’s strangers into their homes and hearts.

From adversity, friendships grew and as music soared and cultural barriers were torn down, bonds were formed which would last a lifetime. Come From Away is a celebration of hope, humanity and unity.

Awarded the Tony® Award for Best Direction of a Musical, Christopher Ashley’s production takes audiences on a journey through a colourful and spirited cast of characters, brought to life by Tony® and Grammy® nominated writing team Irene Sankoff and David Hein.

Come From Away songs

Beautifully fusing Musical Theatre with Folk, this Grammy nominated show includes the songs Welcome To The Rock, 38 Planes, 28 Hours/Wherever We Are, Darkness and Trees, Lead Us Out of the Night, I Am Here, Prayer, and the outstanding Me And The Sky.

Come From Away awards 

In 2017, Come From Away won four Helen Hayes Awards including Outstanding Musical, Direction of a Musical, Outstanding Supporting Actress and Outstanding Ensemble in a Musical. Since then, this big-hearted show has gone on to be nominated for 7 Tony Awards (winning for Best Direction of a Musical), nine Drama Desk Awards (winning in three categories including Outstanding Musical) and nine Olivier Awards, winning Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement in Musical. The US Cast Recording was also nominated in the 2018 Grammy Awards for Best Musical Theater Album.

Come From Away trivia 

No plot spoilers – just five fun facts about the show:

1. Come From Away is based on the actual events that happened on September 11th 2001, when North American air space was closed down and planes crossing the Atlantic had to be diverted to Gander, Newfoundland.
2. The show’s characters all share their names with real-life passengers from the planes which landed in Gander on 9/11.
3. The pilot of the 36th plane, Captain Bass, was later promoted as American Airlines’ first ever female captain. She loves Come From Away so much, she’s seen it over 100 times.
4. The trees used on stage are real. Some of the trees in on Broadway get so much artificial light that they continue to grow.
5. The first sound you hear in the show’s opening song, ‘Welcome to the Rock’ is an Irish drum called a Bodhrán, paying tribute to the early settlers to Newfoundland.

I’ve seen the show before and this evening’s performance wasn’t quite as impressive and moving as the last time I saw the show. The cast seemed a bit flat and as a result it didn’t move me anywhere near as much!
