Come From Away

Dear Blogville,

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.

  1. How nice to hear this! The show is “coming to a theater near me” this fall, and I can’t wait to see it. As someone who lived in NY and witnessed the attacks on the World Trade Center first hand, I’m sure seeing this show will be a poignant event.

    I debated going to this but decided to save $. But after I saw this yesterday, I also happened upon a lady selling them on FB marketplace. When I met her to get the tickets she wouldn’t let me pay for them. Between that and the INCREDIBLE show (that fiddle…), I’m feeling pretty good about humanity.
