COME FROM AWAY
Sunday, November 4, 2018
Come from Away, the smash hit musical tells the story of the US closing its airspace and grounding thousands of passenger jets in the aftermath of the 911 terror attacks. An astonishing 38 jets were forced to land in Gander, a remote Newfoundland town with a population of just 9,000 people. Come from Away focuses on a single set of passengers from one flight and the Gander residents who welcomed them into their homes. Among this diverse set of characters is American Airlines’ first female pilot, a gay couple both called Colin, 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.
A brunch buffet at Claim Jumpers is included before the matinee performance at the 5th Avenue Theater.
