Wow, hier word ik blij van ........Volgens de doorgaans betrouwbare Daily Mail entertainment journalist Baz Bamigboye maakt de aangrijpende musical Come from Away begin 2019 de oversteek van Broadway via Dublin naar het Phoenix in Londen. Met een Engelse cast.
Come from Away is a musical with book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein. It is set in the week following the September 11 attacks and tells the true story of what transpired when 38 planes were ordered to land unexpectedly in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador, as part of Operation Yellow Ribbon. The characters in the musical are based on (and in most cases share the names of) real Gander residents as well as some of the 7,000 stranded travelers they housed and fed.
The musical has been received by audiences and critics as a cathartic reminder of the capacity for human kindness in even the darkest of times] and the triumph of humanity over hate.
