Come From Away to open in China in 2020

Theatre news

COME From Away will open in its first non-English speaking country after producers Junkyard Dog Productions, Rodney Rigby and ACOrange announced a China tour for 2020.

The critically acclaimed musical will open at SAIC-Shanghai Culture Square on May 8, 2020 for a limited engagement, with further cities in China to be announced.

Come From Away opened on Broadway to rave reviews in 2017 and has continued its record-breaking triumph with a second production in Toronto in 2018, a third production touring North America, the West End production opening in February 2019 and the Australian premiere opening in Melbourne in July 2019.

The ground-breaking new musical is based on the incredible real-life events in the wake of the September 11 tragedy when 38 planes carrying nearly 7,000 people from over 100 countries were redirected to Gander, Newfoundland, almost doubling the population of the remote Canadian town.

Capturing the generosity and hospitality of the small community of Gander who invited the “come from aways” into their homes, it is an inspirational story of hope and humanity that resonates around the world.

The West End production is currently booking at the Phoenix Theatre until February 15, 2020.
