Review: COME FROM AWAY at The Overture Center Photo Review: COME FROM AWAY at The Overture Center
by Scott Rawson - Nov 18, 2022

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.
