Come From Away is a show that needs to run and run; its brilliant music and wealth of humour are enough to keep you coming back for more, and we can never remind ourselves too many times of the good that humanity is capable of when it puts its mind to it.
Come From Away tells the incredible true story of how the residents of Gander, Newfoundland welcomed the 7,000 passengers of planes from around the world, due to the American air space being closed after 9/11.
The highly anticipated musical Come From Away leaves me dry-eyed at the Phoenix Theatre despite a very strong cast.
Come From Away is a funny, moving and uplifting new musical by Irene Sankoff and David Hein. Having won Best Musical awards across North America, the show now arrives in London where, if there’s any justice, it’ll prove to be just as successful.
One amazing story in Come From Away is that of Nick and Diane Marson who met on a diverted plane and fell unexpectedly in love. Editor, Olivia, got to chat to Nick and Diane about the show alongside their actor counterparts, Robert Hands and Helen Hobson…
Come From Away, at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin before transferring to the West End is a story of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in a time of need is truly inspirational and this intense, gripping, emotional and heart-warming production perfectly captures the generosity of the human spirit.

If you’ve seen Mamma Mia! before, go again If you’ve never seen it… GO! It’s the ultimate feel-good musical and you won’t be disappointed.
Well, we’re all still here… The big red button hasn’t been pushed yet and theatre is better than ever! But what’s coming up this year?
Mamma Mia is a smash hit West End musical and its easy to see why, I’ve seen it a few times before in the west end – many years ago, now. Therefore I was keen to see how it would work as a touring show.
Muted is tender and thoughtful, beautifully reflective in the way it probes into the different ways in which we grieve. And it uses its structure well, songs are less about narrative propulsion but saying what the characters don’t yet have the emotional articulacy to say out loud.
It’s a brave ask that has any composers title their show Muted – a name that by its very nature suppresses aural beauty. In this new musical that has been a long time in development, we meet Michael a former rock singer, who has been left mute following the traumatic death of his mother.
