Overview

Multi-award-winning Canadian musical Come From Away arrives in the West End, following huge critical success on Broadway. Transferring to the Phoenix Theatre in February 2019, the show will receive a prior run at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin from December 2018 to January 2019. Created by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, the emotional musical is based around the true events of 9/11.

A breath-taking new musical, Come From Away delves into the heart of a small town in Newfoundland during the terrifying attacks. In the days following 9/11 when flights were grounded across the United States, Canada worked with the US Federal Aviation Authority to prevent further threats by routing planes through Canada.

As a result, there were 7,000 passengers stranded in the small town of Newfoundland. With the population suddenly doubled, the townsfolk rallied to look after the disorientated and grieving guests. Come From Away sees new friendships forged as hatred spreads across the world, showing that even in the darkest of days, light can be found.

With a book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, the husband and wife duo behind My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding, Come From Away is only their second musical. Directed by Tony Award-winner Christopher Ashley, whose Broadway credits include Memphis, Xanadu, and The Rocky Horror Show, the production features set design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Toni-Leslie James, lighting design by Howell Binkley and sound design by Gareth Owen.

The show stars Rachel Tucker (Wicked), Nathanael Campbell (Sunny Afternoon UK tour), Clive Carter (Oklahoma!), Jenna Boyd (The Wind in the Willows), Mary Doherty (Avenue Q), Helen Hobson (Mamma Mia!), Robert Hands (Spamalot), Harry Morrison (Half A Sixpence), Emma Salvo (The Toxic Avenger), Jonathan Andrew Hume (The Lion King), David Shannon (Les Misérables) and Cat Simmons (Oliver! UK tour).

Further casting includes Bob Harms, Kiara Jay, Kirsty Malpass, Tania Mathurin, Brandon Lee Sears, Mark Dugdale, Jennifer Tierney and Alexander McMorran.

This Drama Desk Award-winning musical has garnered fans from across the globe, and promises to be wildly popular. With a book based on interview transcripts that pays tribute to the goodness in people during a time that divided a nation, this unmissable production plays at London’s Phoenix Theatre from 30 January to 25 May 2019, with a press night on 18 February 2019.
