Broadway In Victoria is thrilled to announce its return to live theatre with the New York national tour of Come From Away, the Broadway hit musical about the true story of the Canadian small town that welcomed the world.
Come From Away makes its Victoria debut at the Royal Theatre for a limited engagement May 10 to 21—and the tickets are on sale now, available online at rmts.bc.ca and at both the Royal and McPherson Theatre box offices.
Come From Away tells the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
On September 11, 2001 the world stopped. On September 12, their stories moved us all.
A “best musical” winner all across North America, the smash hit has won the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical (Christopher Ashley); four Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical; five Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Outstanding New Broadway Musical; three Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical; four Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards, including Best Production; four Helen Hayes Awards, including Outstanding Production of a Musical; four Gypsy Rose Lee Awards, including Excellence in Production of a Musical; six San Diego Critics Circle Awards, including Outstanding New Musical; three Toronto Theatre Critics Awards, including Best New Musical; three Dora Awards, including Outstanding New Musical/Opera and Outstanding Production; and the 2017 Jon Kaplan Audience Choice Award.
The touring production of Come From Away will star Marika Aubrey (Lincoln Center’s South Pacific), Kevin Carolan (Disney’s Newsies), Harter Clingman (Peter and the Starcatcher), Nick Duckart (In the Heights), Chamblee Ferguson, Christine Toy Johnson (The Music Man), Julie Johnson (Memphis), James Earl Jones II (The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess), Julia Knitel (Beautiful), Sharone Sayegh (The Band’s Visit), Danielle K.
