Producers Rodney Rigby and Junkyard Dog Productions have confirmed that Melbourne will host the exclusive Australian premiere of acclaimed Broadway musical COME FROM AWAY.
Based on a true story of when an isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small town turned into an international sleepover when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe were diverted to Gander's airstrip on 11 September 2001. Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travellers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we are all part of a global community.
Winner 2017 Tony Award for Best Direction. Well done Melbourne for securing an amazing show!
