Come From Away - 2016 - Washington, DC (Regional) Tickets, News, Info & More

$18-$71

Come From Away is the breathtaking new musical that played record-breaking engagements in San Diego and Seattle-and now it is coming to Ford's Theatre. Written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, this is the stunning production from Tony®-nominated directorChristopher Ashley (Memphis) that the Los Angeles Times calls "an affecting and stirring new musical."

On September 11th, 38 planes with 6,579 passengers were stranded in a remote town in Newfoundland. The locals opened their hearts and homes, and hosted this international community of strangers for a week-spurring unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances. Featuring a rousing score of folk and rock, Come From Away honors the better angels of our nature, revealing hope and humanity in a time of darkness.

Running Time:

One hour and 30 minutes

On the northeast tip of North America, on an island called Newfoundland, there's a small town called Gander. On September 11, 2001, approximately 7,000 aircraft passengers were stranded there after the horrific attacks on New York City's World Trade Center. Come From Away tells the true stories of diverted passengers and Gander residents, resulting in a moving musical testament. Since its 2013 development at the Canadian Music Theatre Project, Come From Away soared to international acclaim, receiving multiple Olivier Awards and the 2017 Tony Award for Best Director of a Musical (awarded to Christopher Ashley). For the second time since 2019, the production's North American tour touches down at Edmonton's Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium.

Once in a while, an event occurs that is so viscerally powerful that you will always remember exactly what you were doing when it happened.  Most people over 70 will remember what they were doing when John F. Kennedy was assassinated.  People my age remember the Challenger disaster vividly (I was in my 6th-grade classroom watching the launch on t.v.).  Arguably even more tragic are the events that transpired on September 11, 2001.  From the dust of the wreckage, though, came hope and a unified country.  Come From Away is a story of that hope and unification.  It makes its Sacramento premiere this week in a special engagement that had been postponed since 2020.
