Come From Away Tickets
Multi-award-winning musical Come From Away plays at Toronto’s Elgin Theatre, following a sold-out run at the Royal Alexandra Theatre. Created by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, the musical is directed by Tony Award-winner Christopher Ashley and follows the remarkable true story of the 7,000 stranded passengers in Newfoundland at the time of 9/11.
An uplifting new musical that has captured the hearts of audiences across the country, Come From Away is the story of a small town in Newfoundland, who accommodate passengers during the terrifying attacks. In the days following 9/11, flights are grounded across the United States, and Canada works with the US Federal Aviation Authority to prevent further threats by routing planes through Canada.
As a result, 7,000 passengers are stranded in Newfoundland. With the population of the tiny town growing, the community come together to support the fearful guests. Soon, new friendships form, rivalling the hatred that is spreading across the nation. Come From Away proves that light can shine on even the darkest of days.
Come From Away features a book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and is directed by Tony Award-winner Christopher Ashley (Memphis, The Rocky Horror Show). The production also includes set design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Toni-Leslie James, lighting design by Howell Binkley and sound design by Gareth Owen.
A Drama Desk Award-winning musical, the show has garnered fans from across the globe, becoming hugely popular and also transferring to London’s West End.
