Our Broadway reviewer saw Come From Away on Broadway and had this to say about this ground-breaking production:
"One might think it is impossible to create a feel-good show based on these events and yet Sankoff and Hein have reminded us that the world is filled with loving, kind and generous people who are accepting of others from all walks of life. They have given a voice to the good in this world. It was really refreshing to see a cast of "real" people, as opposed to the musical theatre carbon copy - this talented cast is diverse in age, shapes and cultures which is essential for this story. In fact, it is the root of this story.
The minimal set was magnificently created by Beowulf Boritt and the brilliant ensemble bring various locations to life. Toni-Leslie James' costume design is filled with sneaky and quick changes to allow the ensemble to switch between the locals and "plane people" seamlessly - they do this with their accents too which is terrific!
Everything about this show is accessible, nothing feels forced or contrived, it is simply honest and real, and truly beautiful. Get your ticket to spend some time with the people of Newfoundland, and you are sure to fall in love with them all."
