Couldn't understand how the events of 9/11 could be made into a musical, so I took a chance and purchased tickets long before it opened, and saw it in previews. WOW! This play triggered every emotion one could feel. It truly reflects the good in people, no mattered what. In this troubled world, a must see for all. Everything about... More

Wonderful show at a lovely theater. We at in the balcony, second row. Wonderful seats and the theater is really nice. Good restrooms, too. The show, however, was amazing. Such a rough time and difficult subject, and yet, a wonderfully uplifting musical. The entire audience loved it - you could tell no one wanted it to be over. Suitable for... More

We sat in the last row of the orchestra on the side and the seats were wonderful and comfortable. Saw everything on the stage except the very (same) side; it did not detract at all and i would sit in these seats again. Easy to get to the clean and numerous(!) women's' toilets downstairs.

You must go see this warm, endearing, funny and poignant story of "what happened the day after 9/11" when 38 airplanes were forced to land in the tiny Newfoundland town of Gander. The staging and music are totally refreshing and compelling without falling chandeliers, whomping helicopters or transformer barricades. 12 actors play over 30 characters without missing a beat or...

COME FROM AWAY is a new musical that should not be missed. The setting is Gander, Newfoundland the day all of the planes were grounded - 9-11. The community took in 7000 people and made them feel as comfortable and safe as possible. The play is about the human spirit; the music is rousing; the mood is joyful yet poignant... More

Forget the big, overblown musicals or star-driven plays that have taken over New York - COME FROM AWAY is the real deal. Funny, sad, clever, ingenious, truly theatrical - this is the one that you'll be telling your friends and family to see. And you'll never forget it. DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!

We were very lucky to attend the opening night of this truly amazing show, and being able to do this on Broadway, well let's just say this crossed a couple of things off my wife's bucket list. Due to our excellent working partnership with one of Ontario's largest and most prestigious colleges, we were invited to the opening night as... More

Maybe I liked it because I'm Canadian but it was one of the funniest, well done musicals I've seen. This dramatizes how tiny Gander, Newfoundland accommodated the people on the planes diverted from US Airspace on 9/11. I hope New York theatre goers see this - we Canadians know that newfies are funny without having to try, and kind beyond... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
