Come From Away Review

Every year, I wonder when my first musical would be- as in live. My first musical would up being a gift from Santa. I ended up seeing Come From Away with my mom and dad at Belk Theater.

Bonnie and Others: Sharon Sayegh

Oz and Others: Harter Clingman

Beverley/Annette and Others: Marika Aubrey

Hannah and Others : Danielle K. Thomas

Beulah and Others: Julie Johnson

Come From Away is literally a story of kindness and humanity. It may happen around 9/11, but it in no ways is a tragedy. When 38 planes had to quickly stop after the terrorist attacks, the only place they could go to is Gander, Newfoundland, Canada. The people on those planes were welcomed with kindness. Come From Away is about that story- NOT the story of 9/11, but the story of what happened of those that had to land at Gander. Come From Away constantly is making you laugh. The stories you are seeing are based off of real people and what they experienced when strangers welcomed them.

About the cast- it can be hard to be in Come From Away’s cast. That is because the cast is small, and everyone has to play multiple roles. That is the amazing thing about ANY cast of Come From Away.

The set is literally tables and chairs. You soon realize that the back of the set is actually supposed to represent an airplane. The people of Gander did NOT just help the people, but also the animals on the planes.
