The population of Gander (7000) doubled in size and everyone worked together to care for, feed, shelter, and help strangers who were scared, worried, and stressed. Multiple languages, cultures, food needs, and more needed to be addressed.
This Broadway show is a complete ensemble - no major standout songs or stars. There is no intermission. It's a small cast that transforms in different scenes with a clothing change and movement of chairs and tables. There is humor even in dark times. The love and care shine through some catchy tunes and good voices.
Come From Away is a show with heart that shows the goodness of people in a tough time. The lessons from 9/11 shine through and are applicable today. It was worth the two year wait to see. Live theater is just SO fun.
