ABOUT Come From Away

Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical Come From Away transfers to London’s Phoenix Theatre.

On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

A New York Times Critics’ Pick, Come From Away is the inspiring true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them.

Don’t miss the West End premiere of this breathtaking new musical written by Tony® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley.

Come From Away is booking from 30 January 2019 until 25 May 2019 at the Phoenix Theatre, London.


Based on the inspiring true story of when an isolated community in Gander, Newfoundland came together to play host to 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 travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we’re all part of a global family.
