Come From Away” is a special musical that creatively tells a heart-wrenching story of compassion, caring and a display of the best of humanity with humor and pathos.  It makes for one of those special moments in the theater.  The touring production is beyond excellent and is an absolutely must see!!

The story of “Come From Away” is one of such life-affirming kindness and caring, it’s a balm to behold on stage in these times of political ugliness. The North American tour of this beautiful musical, which tells the true stories of 7,000 passengers grounded in Gander, Newfoundland, following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the United States, played to a jubilant standing ovation Wednesday night at the Connor Palace at Playhouse Square.

But the show is a lot smarter than at first perceived. The dramatic device of having cast members narrate a mosaic of vignettes as they pop in and out of colorful, emblematic and sometimes token roles is usually a hoary anti-dramatic device that could prove clunky, but here it works well, thanks to the precise direction of Christopher Ashley.

If you are one of the many who wonder exactly where this country and the world is headed this is a must see show. The contrast of tragedy, drama and comedy are carefully blended with a story of unabashed charity as an example of what great people are capable of. It is a lesson we all need to relearn. Come for a performance that will have you laughing and crying at the same time.

BOTTOM LINE: Come From Away may even be perfect for skeptics who say they hate musicals because they judge them fake or too sentimental or too satirical or whatever. It’s none of those things. An unlikely subject for a musical? Probably, and yet, it’s a perfect mix of story and song that doesn’t wallow in tragedy or negative emotion. If you only go to one show this year, let it be this one.
