As it continues its sold-out, record-breaking run on New York’s Broadway, and in Canada, Come from Away has landed for its UK premiere at London’s Phoenix Theatre.

This joyous new musical tells the incredible, real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.

“This is a universal story. It’s a story about a small town helping the world and we can’t wait to share it with you all.”  Irene Sankoff and David Hein, the writers of Come from Away.

“Irresistible and inspiring. It’s a musical that gets everything right.” 

“This miraculous masterpiece is totally, soul-feedingly wonderful.”  

“A moving, irresistible show that unapologetically champions kindness.”

“A global phenomenon, and you can see why.”
