Broadway's Come From Away returns to Toronto in 2018
Mirvish Theatre brings the Newfoundland-inspired musical back to its Canadian roots
After months of performances to sold-out crowds throughout North America, the musical Come From Away is returning to the stage where it premiered in Toronto last fall.
On Tuesday, Mirvish Theatre announced that Come From Away will get a second curtain call at the Royal Alexandra Theatre — the same space where it received a standing ovation from the audience on opening night before its Broadway engagement.
The Canadian musical is inspired by the true-story of passengers stranded in Gander, N.L. following the 9/11 terror attacks.
The show has been earning international acclaim since it hit the stage.
