New Broadway show Come From Away heads to Melbourne in July
Come From Away is a critically acclaimed new Broadway show performing on stage at Melbourne's Comedy Theatre from 20 July, 2019.
This ground-breaking new musical is based on the incredible real-life events in the wake of the September 11 tragedy when 38 planes carrying nearly 7,000 people from over 100 countries were redirected to Gander, Newfoundland, almost doubling the population of the remote Canadian town.
Come From Away
Capturing the generosity and hospitality of the small community of Gander who invited the “come from aways” into their homes, it is an inspirational story of hope and humanity.
Come From Away opened on Broadway to rave reviews in 2017 and has continued its record-breaking triumph with a second production in Toronto, a third production touring North America and a West End production that has just been nominated for nine Olivier Awards.
