Come From Away is based on a true story of when the isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small Canadian town turned into an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander's air strip on September 11th, 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 they're all part of a global family.

What did ¬†¬†¬† These 12 actors have created the most perfect professional ensemble show I have ever seen. There was no stand out star of this show, there were no pro or antagonists. There was only circumstances and stories. Often reviewers say things like, ‚ÄúThis is not a show to be missed!‚Äô ‚ÄúCatch it while you can!‚ÄĚ and other such things, so I won‚Äôt. But I will tell you that you will be missing out on some of the best theater I have seen. So, get your tickets, it‚Äôs only ‚Äú90 minutes without an intermission‚ÄĚ and worth every second. This is a show I personally hope to see again and again.
