Author News DeskNews Desk, August 1st, 2018

The premier national tour of the Broadway hit, Come From Away is getting ready to launch in Seattle this October. Becky Gulsvig (School of Rock), Megan McGinnis (Les Miserables) and Andrew Samonsky (South Pacific) are all set to star with the full cast having now been announced.

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.
