The Tony Award-winning musical Come From Away will land in London’s Phoenix Theatre from 30 January 2019.

Telling the heart-warming stories of 7,000 stranded air passengers in the wake of 9/11, and the small community of Newfoundland that welcomed them in, Come From Away will make its UK premiere next year, with an opening night on 18 February 2019.

The smash-hit musical, which won the Tony for Best Direction of a Musical (Christopher Ashley) in 2017 and garnered 6 further nominations, continues its record-breaking seasons on Broadway and in Canada. A 60-city North American Tour launches in October in Seattle, and a feature film adaptation is in the works.

Come From Away is a joyous new musical that showcases how, in the wake of catastrophe, enduring friendships can grow and prosper.

On 11 September 2001, the world stopped – and on 12 September, their stories moved the world. Passengers of planes from around the globe were welcomed into the homes and lives of the residents of Gander, Newfoundland. Despite initial clashes of culture and nerves running high, uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

The UK premiere of Come From Away follows an engagement at Dublin’s Abbey Theatre from 6 December 2018.

Canada’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Mrs Janice Charette, said: “I could not be more delighted that Come From Away is coming to the UK next year. A story that captures the kindness and humanity of the people of Canada – and the people of Newfoundland and Labrador in particular – at a crucial moment in U.S. and global history. This show reminds us what good neighbours and true friendship is all about. Audiences in London are in for a treat.”

Come From Away features a book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein and is directed by Christopher Ashley, with musical staging by Kelly Devine.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.
