After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the airspace was closed and 38 planes were diverted to Gander, Canada, making this small town unexpected hosts to an international community. Residents of Gander volunteered with generosity and warm-heartedness to house, feed, and entertain the travelers.
As season subscribers at the Seattle Repertory Theatre, this play was part of our package. We had no idea what we would see that night and did not know it was a musical as the SRT usually presents only plays not musicals.
Last Tuesday, we saw “COME FROM AWAY” and we loved it.
The show is very well crafted, moving, funny, and heartwarming. The staging is efficient and flowing freely between sequences and talented performers fill several roles amazingly.
We have decided to see it again and we will bring our kids (12 and 17) next weekend.
The SRT added shows and the last one is now December 20th. Get your tickets while you still can.
It is only $16 for students.
