Come From Away at Long Beach Terrace Theater

Why see Come From Away?

Flying Out On Tour!

Following well-received engagements on Broadway, London's West End and its premiere city Toronto, this hit musical based on true events comes to you on their North American tour! Nominated for 8 Tony Awards and 9 Drama Desk gongs, this is a musical that celebrates human endurance, compassion, and bravery under dreadful circumstances.

What is Come From Away About?

On September 11th 2001, as the full horror of the terror attacks became apparent, the US closed its airspace, grounding thousands of passenger jets heading in, out and throughout of North America. An astonishing 38 of them were forced to land in Gander, a remote Newfoundland town with a population of just 9,000 people. The arrival of the passengers boosted those numbers to nearly 20,000.

Come From Away focuses on a single set of passengers from one flight and the Gander residents who welcomed them into their homes. Amongst this diverse set of characters is American Airlines' first female pilot, a gay couple both called Kevin, and an Egyptian chef, whose initial apprehensions about the reception he will receive proves unfounded. Weaving together all of their storylines, the show creates an affirming portrait of human connection in the most trying of circumstances.

Did You Know?

The musical gets its title from Newfoundland slang. The people of Gander refer to the passengers as "come from aways".

Seen on Broadway in May 2018

I was so moved by the play in New York, could not wait to see it again in Los Angeles with my friends and family. I am so looking forward to seeing the tour cast in Dec. at the Music Center. It is truly a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone. It reminds us how 9/11 changed us all. ... Read more

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. ... Read more
