Last year I saw Come From Away on Broadway and it is the most incredible, moving and breathtaking musical I’ve ever seen.
Telling the remarkable true story of the small Canadian town Gander in Newfoundland that welcomed thousands of people stranded on planes during 9/11, it’s a heartwarming tale of the beauty of humanity.
On the 10th of October at Canada House, the official UK and Ireland production launched in London to reveal the stellar cast and give an insight into why this is such a special production.
