Come From Away FAQs

Come From Away is a Tony Award®-winning musical that tells the remarkable true story of the people of the Canadian town of Gander, Newfoundand, who welcomed thousands of airplane passengers into their homes on 9/11. When commercial flights were redirected to their remote island, the locals opened their homes and hearts to the stranded travelers, and the little town became a beacon of hope and tolerance.

A testament of the human spirit, Come From Away celebrates the best of humanity and the power of connection. The show has been praised by critics and audiences alike and has quickly become one of the most impactful musicals in Broadway’s history. Come From Away is a song-filled, story-driven celebration of the bonds that are created when we’re in need.
