Come From Away: The Concert, which will be presented in Newfoundland, Canada in two separate September engagements, has announced complete casting. Company members from the original Broadway, Australian, and Toronto productions will come together for the strictly limited engagements.

The musical, which tells the true story of 7,000 air passengers stranded in Gander, Newfoundland in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, will be presented in its setting of Gander, at Steele Community Center September 13–15; and in St. John's, the capital of Newfoundland, at Mary Brown's Centre September 19–21. The sold-out concerts will release a limited new block of tickets at 12 PM NT September 6.

The work will play its final performance at Broadway’s Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre October 2. The production will have played 25 previews and 1,670 regular performances at the time of closing, when it will be the 49th longest-running show in Broadway history, and the longest tenant in the 105-year history of the Schoenfeld.

The production received seven 2017 Tony nominations including Best Musical, with Christopher Ashley winning Best Director of a Musical.

Come From Away is currently playing tours in North America and Australia, and received four Olivier awards, including Best Musical, in London's West End. The musical is set to return to Toronto following a run at Ottawa's National Arts Centre in 2024.

The Critics’ Choice Award-nominated live filmed version of Come From Away, captured during the COVID-19 shutdown, is streaming globally on Apple TV+.

The show features music, lyrics, and a book by Irene Sankoff and David Hein with direction by Tony winner Christopher Ashley, choreography by Olivier winner Kelly Devine, music supervision and arrangements by Ian Eisendrath, scenic design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Toni-Leslie James, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by Gareth Owen, orchestrations by August Eriksmoen, and casting by Rachel Hoffman of The Telsey Office.
