Having visited Newfoundland including Gander last year I can truly say the people are as giving and friendly as shown in this play. This true life experience was fast paced with all actors playing amazing roles as multiple characters. Royal Alex is always a great place to see theatre.

What an amazing show!! Loved the story from the perspective of the people of Gander. The acting was outstanding, the music wonderful and the story was great. Both funny and heart wrenching I laughed and cried. A must see!!

This is a magnificent theatre although you seem to climb a lot of stairs. Nonetheless we found the sight lines good and we could easily see and hear. We saw Come From Away which is probably the best show we have ever seen.

Beautiful theatre, however, balcony seats are too steep, otherwise, great theatre. The good thing is you are able to see the stage wherever you sit.
