Come From Away, Phoenix Theatre

Come From Away

Phoenix Theatre, London

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.

On September 11, the world stopped. On September 12, their stories moved us all.

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 is booking from 22 July 2021 until 18 December 2021 at the Phoenix Theatre, London.

What’s the Story?

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.
