The National Tour of Come From Away Takes Flight

The hit Broadway Musical and 2017 Tony Winner for Best Director Come From Away, which is currently ensconced at Broadway’s Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, is about to take its inspirational story on the road. The National Tour will commence at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre and then will travel all over North America. The Tony Award-winning musical recently launched a second company in Canada with a sold out four-week engagement in Winnipeg and is currently playing to standing-room-only audiences in Toronto at the Royal Alexandra Theatre.

Come From Away features a book and score by the team of Irene Sankoff and David Hein. The musical’s gestation period found it receiving productions in Ontario, Canada, with runs at the La Jolla Playhouse, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Ford’s Theatre in Washington, DC and The Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. Director Christopher Ashley ushered the production to a successful Broadway run where it was nominated for 7 Tony Awards, and Ashley taking home the prize for Best Director of a Musical.

Come From Away takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.”
