Come From Away's first national tour has officially kicked off! Opening at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre on October 9, the production will run through to November 4 before heading onwards to Salt Lake City. Take a look at the cast in action in these brand new production images!

The musical officially opened on Broadway on March 12, 2017 and has since become the longest running Canadian musical on Broadway! The tour cast includes Kevin Carolan, Harter Clingman, Nick Duckhart, Chamblee Ferguson, Becky Gulsvig and Julie Johnson.

The Tony-winning musical features book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, with direction by Christopher Ashley.

What is Come From Away about?

On September 11th 2001, as the full horror of the terror attacks became apparent, the US closed its airspace, grounding thousands of passenger jets heading in, out and throughout of North America. An astonishing 38 of them were forced to land in Gander, a remote Newfoundland town with a population of just 9,000 people. The arrival of the passengers boosted those numbers to nearly 20,000.

Come From Away focuses on a single set of passengers from one flight and the Gander residents who welcomed them into their homes. Amongst this diverse set of characters is American Airlines' first female pilot, a gay couple both called Kevin, and an Egyptian chef, whose initial apprehensions about the reception he will receive proves unfounded. Weaving together all of their storylines, the show creates an affirming portrait of human connection in the most trying of circumstances.
