The hit musical has revealed that it is now taking bookings until 23rd May 2020 at London’s Phoenix Theatre, having recently celebrated its 300th performance and 300,000th visitor in the UK.
The joyous musical tells the true story of 7,000 stranded air passengers during the wake of 9/11, and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Initially running until February 2020, producers have now announced it will run until May.
In honour of the kindness shown by the people of Newfoundland, the London company of the production has also announced a partnership with homeless charity Centrepoint.
Members of the Come From Away team will join the Centrepoint ’sleep-out’ on 21st November, to raise awareness and funds for the charity’s good work.

It has also been announced that a tour of China will commence in Shanghai from May 2020, and a feature film adaptation is in the works.
On 11th September 2001 the world stopped. On 12th September, their stories moved us all. Cultures clashed, and nerves ran high, but as uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
The production features a book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein and is directed by Christopher Ashley.
