Come From Away

The next broadway show on my list is Come From Away.  I have heard that it is so good and a definite must see this season.  Here is the story in case you did not hear!!!!

Come From Away won the Tony for Best Direction in a Musical.  It tells the amazing story of how thousands of travelers were grounded in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in a tiny Canadian town and how they were heartwarmingly cared for.

On 9/11 38 planes with 6,579 passengers landed and were stranded in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland.  The story tells of the camaraderie of how the townspeople opened their homes and hearts and hosted this international community of strangers, which basically doubled their population!
