The smashing true story, Come From Away. Only at the splendid Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in the city of New York City on the Sunday 16th October 2022. Come and watch this remarkable re-telling of the upsetting experience of almost seven thousand people trapped on a small island off Canada in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland. This Best Musical winner all across North America takes you to a place you never want to leave! The hopes and the fears portrayed are all real, gathered from sixteen thousand first-hand accounts from people left abandoned because of the September eleventh attacks. Buy your tickets now for this smashing glimpse back at that strange time in history.
The scenic designer of Come From Away, Beowulf Boritt, weaves an breathtaking tale through imagery and set design. Echoing to the brilliant 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 few set pieces paired with masterful 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 watch all the thrills, highs, lows and excitement of a live theater show, come to the breathtaking Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in New York City for a night of stunning entertainment.
