What to expect

Please be aware of government guidelines before setting off.

Government Guidelines
  • Broadway’s smash-hit Come From Away won Best Musical all across North America and has now arrived on the West End stage.
  • Experience the incredible true story of a small Candian town that welcomed the world in this award-winning musical in London.
  • As hostility turns into friendship, get ready for some heartwarming lessons in hope and humanity with Come From Away London.


After record-breaking runs on New York City’s Broadway and four prestigious Olivier Awards, Come From Away is landing in London at the Phoenix Theatre.

Delve into the remarkable true story of Come From Away where 7,000 air passengers were left stranded in a small town during the tragedy of 9/11. Set in the scenic Canadian province of Newfoundland, a close-knit community must welcome thousands of ‘come from aways’ into their quiet lives in the name of generosity and empathy. As people from all over the world come together in the wake of disaster, cultures clash and tensions initially run high but things are soon soothed by the magic of music and spirit of humanity. This touching true tale written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein features Tony Award-winning direction by Christopher Ashley and a host of much-loved songs including Welcome to the Rock, Me and the Sky and 38 Planes. As powerful friendships are born against all odds, Come From Away offers some of the most important lessons in compassion and unity from musical theatre that London has to offer.

Come From Away’s roaring success speaks for itself and will have the whole family grinning from ear to ear, and maybe even shedding a tear. For even more of the best musicals in London where messages of friendship soar, why not check out Everybody’s Talking About Jamie or Wicked the Musical?
