Toronto: “Come From Away” returns to the Royal Alexandra Theatre
Friday, December 13, 2019
Toronto’s longest-running Canadian musical, COME FROM AWAY returns to its original home, the Royal Alexandra Theatre.
“We were delighted to be performing at the beautiful Elgin Theatre for 10 months, but tonight we're returning home,” says Canadian producer David Mirvish. “While we were at the Elgin, COME FROM AWAY continued its outreach around the world. During that time, the musical had its British premiere at London’s Phoenix Theatre, where it is still selling out nightly and was awarded four Olivier Awards, including Best Musical. The show has gone on to conquer Australian audiences in Melbourne since opening in July.”
Originating producers Junkyard Dog Productions add: “Travel is always exciting, but everyone always yearns to go back home. In Toronto, the Royal Alexandra Theatre is COME FROM AWAY’s home. It was the theatre where the pre-Broadway production played before moving to New York, and it was the theatre where the show’s new all-Canadian company began its life.” Welcome to the Rock!
