COME FROM AWAY at Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Broadway

June 5, 2017

COME FROM AWAY at the Gerald Schonfeld Theatre on Broadway is the story of passengers stranded because of aircraft grounded during 911 and the locals who hosted them in Newfoundland.

This is a powerful drama about exceptional human kindness beautifully told through an ensemble cast of 12 that represent 16000 people. It feels distinctly Canadian and that is an important part of the charm of this show. The true characters and true stories around this transformational world event make this show both important and relevant.

I felt both enlightened and entertained. The cast and the folksy band are simply awesome and their delivery together with the power of this story gives this show a good chance to take Best Musical Award at next weekend’s Tony Award Ceremony.
