  Come From Away at The Kennedy Center

Come From Away

The Kennedy Center
2700 F Street, NW Washington

On September 12, 2001, people of every nation woke up to a different world. Seven thousand airline passengers discovered just how different when their flights were diverted to a small town in Newfoundland, doubling its population and leaving them stranded. And yet, despite clashing cultures and high tensions, the locals welcomed the travelers into their homes. This heartwarming true story is the basis for the Tony-winning musical Come From Away, which now comes to the Kennedy Center, directed by Christopher Ashley, who took home the Best Director Tony for the show's Broadway run. Don't miss these pre-sale offers for the show the New York Daily News called "a singing reminder that when things are at their worst, people can be at their best."

"...Come From Away doesn't begin to touch on the aftermaths of 9/11. But that is not its purpose. Its purpose is to show how, in 2019, when foreign-born visitors to America are often suspect and many are turned away at the border, there can be another way. Its purpose is to illustrate the fact that in 2001, there was a place and a people who celebrated hospitality, who gladly welcomed strangers into their homes without knowing anything about them."
