COME FROM AWAY To Open In China In 2020
A new production of the global success, Come From Away, will open in its first non-English speaking country with a tour of China in 2020.
The critically acclaimed musical will open at SAIC-Shanghai Culture Square on Friday, May 8, 2020 for a limited engagement, with further cities in China to be announced. Tickets on sale in China on October 10, 2019, at Shcstheatre.com.
The Tony Award-winning Come From Away opened on Broadway to rave reviews in 2017 and has continued its record-breaking triumph with a second production in Toronto in 2018, a third production touring North America, the fourth West End production opened in February 2019, winning four Oliver Awards including "Best Musical", and the fifth Australian premiere, which opened in Melbourne in July 2019.
COME FROM AWAY tells 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.
On September 11, 2001 the world stopped. On September 12, their stories moved us all.
