Following the 9/11 attacks, 38 planes and 6,579 passengers were forced to land in Gander, Newfoundland, doubling the population of one small town on the edge of the world. Based on interviews with locals, Come From Away is about how hosting this international community of strangers spurred unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances.
This moving new new musical by Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein arrives on Broadway in a production directed by Christopher Ashley following previous engagements in La Jolla and Seattle.
