Come from Away is all about the humanity and kindness shown to strangers in their darkest times by the locals of Gander which is located in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Immediately, after the tragedy of 9/11, 38 international aircraft with 6,579 passengers were diverted towards the Gander airport, doubling the human load in the small town. People of Gander facilitated all the passengers with food, shelter, clothes, and everything else that was needed at that time regardless of their religion, caste, color, and political differences. This act of kindness was acclaimed globally and the people of Gander are still ranked very high on the scale of hospitality and kindness. Come from Away is all about what happened with passengers and what they narrated after landing safely at their home countries. CFA features all the major characters who played a vital role in those circumstances.
Come from Away's first Broadway show was premiered at Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on 12th March 2017. It became a box office success, receiving notable positive reviews across borders. In the same year, CFA was nominated for seven Tony Awards and won Best Direction of a Musical. In 2018, it was nominated for Best Musical Theater Album at Grammies as well.
