Come From Away

Book, Music and Lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein 
Music Supervision by Ian Eisendrath 
Choreographed by Kelly Devine 

Directed by Christopher Ashley“A superb new show! A moving, thoroughly entertaining tribute to the indomitable human spirit.” –Variety    Fresh off sold-out runs in Seattle and San Diego, the new musical Come From Away tells the heart-warming true story of how a small Canadian town cared for 6,579 airline passengers stranded there on 9/11. When 38 planes were diverted to its doorstep, the town of Gander doubled in size, playing host to an international community of strangers and offering food, shelter and friendship. Featuring a rousing score of folk and rock, Come From Away honors the better angels of our nature, revealing hope and humanity in a time of darkness. The production marks the Ford’s debut of Tony Award-nominated director Christopher Ashley. See this hit musical prior to its Broadway engagement!
