Come From Away

Come From Away MusicalCome From Away is the stunning new Broadway musical that has been honored with Best Musical awards across North America, including New York’s Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical.  Radio Mouse Entertainment is a proud member of the Broadway producing team for the show, which is written by Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein and directed by Tony-winning director Christopher Ashley.

Based on a true story, Come From Away is about the small Canadian community of Gander, Newfoundland, where 38 planes filled with passengers from all over the world were forced to land when U.S. airspace was closed on September 11, 2001. The tiny town’s population doubled in an instant, but the spirited Newfoundlanders opened their homes to those who had “come from away,” as locals and visitors cared for and comforted each other during a dark time.

There are a million stories about that day, but Come From Away is one you haven’t heard before — an utterly unique and moving tribute to human kindness, with a gorgeous Celtic-Rock score and tales full of heart and humor.
