“Come From Away”

On September 11, 2001 the world stopped. In a heartbeat, United States airspace was closed and 38 planes with 6,579 passengers were stranded in a remote town in Newfoundland. The locals opened their hearts and homes, hosting this international community of strangers, spurring unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances.

One of those passengers who is depicted in the new Broadway musical “Come From Away” was Rabbi Lievi Sudak. As happened in real life, a local Holocaust survivor who had not revealed his Jewishness even to his wife comes out to the rabbi. The townspeople make an effort to anticipate the rabbi’s kosher needs.

Written by Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein, this is the production from Tony-nominated director Christopher Ashley (“Memphis”) that the Los Angeles Times calls “an affecting and stirring new musical” and The Washington Post calls “Best of the Year.”
