“Come From Away” the Musical:

The Tony and Olivier Award winning Broadway Production follows the incredible real-life journey of 7,000 air passengers who were grounded in Gander, Newfoundland in Canada in the wake of the September 11 tragedy.  The small community of Gander invited the “come from aways” into their lives, providing hope and humanity to all those in need.  It is really a celebration of kindness and compassion which resonates with audiences – especially in this time of Covid-19.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see this breathtaking new Broadway musical written by Tony and Grammy nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, with Tony winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley and musical staging by Olivier Award winner Kelly Devine.

The musical has won countless awards internationally including the 2017 Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical (Christopher Ashley); Winner of five Outer Critics Circle Awards (New York) including Outstanding New Broadway Musical.  On top of this, the musical has received three Drama Desk Awards (New York) including Outstanding Musical, four Helen Hayes Awards (Washington, D.C) including Outstanding Production of a Musical, four Gypsy Rose Lee Awards (Seattle) including Excellence in production of a Musical and six San Diego Critics Circle Awards including Outstanding New Musical.

In 2019, the musical added to its international award tally with four Olivier Awards including Best New Musical, Best Theatre Choreographer (Kelly Devine), Best Sound Design and Outstanding Achievement in Music, along with four Broadway World UK awards, taking its international award tally to 41.

Australian audiences have furthered its record-breaking status, earning the title of most successful musical ever staged in the Melbourne Comedy Theatre’s 91-year history, and the audience-voted Ticketmaster’s “Ticket of the Year” award for 2019.
