The extraordinary, multi award-winning musical
Winner of four Olivier Awards including Best New Musical, Come from Away is a heart-warming show now playing at London’s Phoenix Theatre. Come From Away tickets are the perfect pick me up – a New York Times Critics’ Pick, this joyous musical recounts the incredible true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and a small Canadian town that welcomed them.
Cultures clashed, and nerves ran high, but as uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
Written by Tony nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by Tony-winning Best Director Christopher Ashley, Come from Away is a life-affirming smash-hit musical not to be missed.
Come from Away tickets are booking until 7 January 2023 at the Phoenix Theatre, London.
What's the story of Come From Away?
Based on the inspiring true story, Come from Away is the story of an isolated community in Gander, Newfoundland coming together to play host to the world.
What started as an average day in a small town turned in to an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander’s air strip on September 11, 2001.
Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travellers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we’re all part of a global family.
