7,000 Stranded Passengers. One Small Town. A Remarkable True Story.
Winner of four Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical in London and the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical on Broadway, this smash hit show shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives with open hearts.
Experience this joyous story and soaring music as spirited locals and global passengers come together to forge friendships that will stay with them forever.
The first female American Airlines captain, the quick-thinking town mayor, the mother of a New York firefighter and the eager local news reporter are among the many real characters caught at the start of the moment that changed the course of history and whose stories became a true celebration of hope, humanity and unity.
Tony Award-winning director Christopher Ashley, alongside Olivier Award-winning writers Irene Sankoff and David Hein, bring this uplifting true story to the stage in a life-affirming production that has audiences on their feet night after night.
