Come From Away features a book, music & lyrics by Irene Sankoff & David Hein.
Synopsis: "Come From Away is set against the backdrop of that infamous day in September 2001. In a heartbeat, 38 planes and 6,579 passengers were forced to land in Gander, Newfoundland, doubling the population of one small town on the edge of the world. When the world stopped, their stories moved us all."
The creative team behind Come From Away features choreography by Tony nominee Kelly Devine, music supervision by Ian Eisendrath, scenic design by Tony winner Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Tony nominee Toni-Leslie James, lighting design by Tony winner Howell Binkley, and sound design by Tony nominee Gareth Owen.
Come From Away is produced on Broadway by Junkyard Dog Productions.
The production premiered in June 2015 at La Jolla Playhouse and moved on to the Seattle Repertory Theatre. This was followed by limited engagements at Washington D.C.'s Ford's Theatre (September 2 to October 9, 2016) and at Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre (November 15, 2016 to January 8, 2017).
