The true story of seven thousand passengers trapped in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland. Only at the marvelous Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in the city of New York City on the Friday 5th August 2022. This absolutely awe-inspiring true story of how the small town of Gander, Newfoundland, on a very small island just off Canada ended up doubling their population overnight as 38 airplanes were forced to land because of the September eleventh attacks. Purchase your tickets now for this Tony-Award winning Best Musical! Come From Away is collected from first-hand experiences of some of those trapped passengers.
The scenic designer of Come From Away, Beowulf Boritt, weaves an breathtaking tale through imagery and set design. Echoing to the stunning utilization of the turn table by David Korins in Hamilton, Boritt somehow manages to convince the audience that two rows of chairs paired with a rotating turn table are, in fact, an aeroplane. The clever utilization of minimal set pieces paired with highest level acting helps viewers’ suspension of disbelief as they are transported into the haunting and humbling tale of 6,500 passengers who survived the skies of September 11. So if you want to see all the thrills, highs, lows and excitement of a live theater show, come to the iconic Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in New York City for a night of stunning entertainment.
