Learn How Newfoundland Handled a Global Catastrophe During Come from Away

On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all. Broadway’s Come from Away is a Best Musical winner across North America—and it’s headed to Majestic Theatre! Enjoy a breathtaking Thursday night when you make plans to see this Broadway favorite on February 27th.

This New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

Come from Away is based on the true story of the time when the isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland, played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small town turned into an international sleepover, when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from around the globe, were diverted to Gander’s airstrip on September 11, 2001. Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we’re all part of a global family.

Don’t miss this breathtaking new musical written by Tony Award nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein and helmed by 2017’s Tony Award-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, “[Come from Away] takes you to a place you never want to leave!” This performance of Come from Away will also be featuring GalaPro. GalaPro is a revolutionary, innovative app for accessibility and translation, which enhances the audience’s experience for live performances. Patrons using the app can now enjoy the show with closed captioning on their smartphone. All services are provided in real-time, using voice recognition technology.

Come from Away will be performed at the Majestic Theatre this Thursday, February 27th. Tickets start at $45.00 and are available for purchase at www.majesticempire.com.
