Second time I have seen this play. It is a must see for all Canadian and Americans. A feel good production. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. Laughed, cried, tapped my toe at the great music. Cast is outstanding. Best play I've seen in a long time.

It makes you laugh and cry at the same time. Come from Away is such a heart warming story and so well communicated in the musical. Great show!

We went to see the musical Come From Away and loved it. It is joyful, sad, hopeful and uplifting. Great music and lots of fun. 100 minutes, no intermission, full of life and energy.

I hadn't been to this theatre in 17 years, and returned for the play Come From Away (which was excellent, btw). The theatre still retains its old-style charm and elegance. Obviously well maintained, seats are comfortable and acoustics are excellent.
