Until tonight, if someone were to describe a Broadway show to me as “A musical about planes diverted to Newfoundland on 9/11” I would have thought they were making it up. I certainly wouldn’t think it would become one of my top three musicals of all time. Yet here we are.
I went to Come From Away with Kathleen tonight. We were both blown away. The music is wonderful. The story is great. I cared about the characters. I now want to visit Gander, Newfoundland. If Come From Away comes to your town, you should go see it.
