Learn to be a Newfie

Come From Away is theatre at its best. From the self-deprecating quips, to the first wary sips of screech, to the daring kissing-of-the-cod, you, who "come-from-away," are invited to peek into the world of Gander, NL. Jayzus, Mary, and Joseph, isn't Canada proud of the people on the Rock? Humour (love the griddles' scene) is brilliantly laced with sympathy. You may not catch every word? That's okay, you catch enough of Newfinese to appreciate the grandness and grace in small-town simplicity: Once upon a time, Canadians responded to an American tragedy with action, generosity, and compassion. Wonderful score and performance.

Riveting from beginning to end. The audience roared with a well-deserved standing ovation. This might be my favorite musical ever.

Moving, funny, extraordinary

This production is nothing short of amazing. The cast is on stage for 140 minutes without intermission and play both the passengers and the Newfoundlers, assisted by clever lighting and simple but effective stage props. The cast is talented, the music entertaining, and true story of human kindness and generosity moving. The light of the people of Gander in the midst of the darkest time in US history brings a sense of hope and a reminder that the world is a better place when we help another in need.

Deeply moving and highly entertaining

Wasn’t sure how a musical could possibly be made from this story and was honestly more than a little skeptical. Have never meant a standing ovation and applause more. All events are handled with just the right amount of humour and/or sorrow. The music and sound resonated well and we had no problem understanding any of the accents. The actors versatility was astounding and we have spent time just trying to remember who played who and it’s surprisingly difficult because they transformed themselves, and the settings, so well by incredibly simple means.
