Come From Away
COME FROM AWAY is the stunning new musical that has played record-breaking engagements in San Diego, Seattle, Washington, DC and Toronto, to critical acclaim and cheering audiences, and is now on Broadway. Radio Mouse Entertainment is a proud member of the Broadway producing team for the musical, which is written by Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein and directed by Tony-nominated 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.
