The Phoenix Theatre has hosted the hit musical Come From Away for a year now and it’s celebrating with a brand-new cast! The raw emotion and story that pull at your heartstrings are still all there, but this time there are different faces and voices delivering the performance. Although the previous cast gave a wonderful show, the newcomers may be even stronger. If you’ve never seen this heartwarming musical, the cast alone makes it worth attending, but even if you’ve seen it before, you’re likely to be amazed by the updated performances.
Come from Away focuses on true events that happened in the wake of the September 11 attacks in the United States in 2001. With 38 planes diverted to the quaint Canadian town of Gander, residents and travellers were forced to coexist during a terrifying and stressful time for all. The musical is a refreshing reminder of the humanity and generosity that can be found in even the darkest of moments.
