The smash hit musical COME FROM AWAY celebrated its 1000th performance in the West End on the 28th of November 2022. After the performance, the producers announced that the show will tour the UK and Ireland from February 2024.
COME FROM AWAY opened its doors at The Phoenix Theatre in February 2019 and was nominated for 9 Olivier Awards. It went on to win 4 awards including ‘Best New Musical’ and ‘Outstanding Achievement in Music’. During its run, the show has been seen by more than 850,000 people. It was announced in July that the show would close on the West End on January 7 2023. COME FROM AWAY TICKETS are still available for the final few weeks of performances at The Phoenix Theatre.
The award-winning production tells the true story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world that were grounded on an island just off Canada during the wake of 9/11. The planes were diverted to a small town called Gander in Newfoundland and the people of the town welcomed the ‘plane people’ into their lives for 4 days.
With music, lyrics, and a book by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, the characters of the musical are based on actual Gander residents and the passengers that were stranded there.
This heart-warming story will make you cry and laugh in equal measure and reminds us of the importance of human kindness in our darkest times.
Venues, cast, and performance dates for the tour will be announced at a later date.
For now, book DISCOUNT TICKETS COME FROM AWAY to catch the last few weeks at The Phoenix Theatre before it goes on tour in 2024. Don’t miss this smash-hit musical in London before the show ends in January 2023.
