As hit musical Come From Away celebrates its 300th performance and 300,000th visitor in the UK, the Olivier Award-winning “Best New Musical” announces that it will further extend its hugely successful run in the West End until 23 May 2020.
Come From Away is nominated for four awards at the 2019 West End Wilma Awards, including Best West End Show.
This joyous musical tells the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded air passengers during the wake of 9/11, and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed, and nerves ran high, but as uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
On 11 September 2001 the world stopped. On 12 September, their stories moved us all.
To honour the kindness and stewardship shown by the people of Newfoundland, the London company of Come From Away is pleased to announce a partnership with homeless charity Centrepoint. The partnership will include a gala performance on 7 November as well as members of the Come From Away team joining the Centrepoint ‘sleep-out’ on 21 November, to raise awareness and vital funds for the charity’s good work.
