London Come From Away concert

Come From Away at London’s Phoenix Theatre has been on standby like the majority of musicals since the first Lockdown in March 2020. Theatres have, for the most part, remained dark since then, being unable to reopen due to the restrictions set by the UK Government. The theatre industry has worked tirelessly to reopen, and slowly, the curtains are beginning to rise again.

Come From Away will be reopening in the West End with a special concert version of the show for a limited 3 week season. The run will span over the shows West End 2nd birthday and it will be socially distanced.

What is Come From Away about?

On September 11, 2001, 38 planes had to make unexpected landings in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador. Come From Away tells the story of what happened when the residents of this small community struggle to accommodate nearly 7,000 passengers as they and the world are reeling in the days following 9/11. Many of the characters are based on real-life passengers, including Nick and Diane Marson, a Brit and an American who fell in love in real life following the disaster.

The London Come From Away concert and the full-scale production are separate things.
