Based on the 7,000 stranded passengers who were diverted to Newfoundland in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, Come From Away shares the real-life stories of those who formed an international community in Gander. Come From Away began performances at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Feb. 18, 2017, and was nominated for seven Tony Awards. To date, Come From Away has played 1,250 performances on Broadway.
The Broadway reopening of Come From Away comes days after the Come From Away film adaptation will be streamed. Come From Away will be released on Apple TV+ on September 10, the day before the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Find out more about the Come From Away film here.
