      Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News "Come From Away" is a salve for those worrying if we have lost our sense of compassion. Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 23, 2021 Full Review Don Aucoin Boston Globe All drama asks you to suspend disbelief, but "Come From Away" asks you also to suspend cynicism, aiming to move and uplift you. It's not a bad bargain, and "Come From Away" holds up its end. Rated: 3/4 Sep 17, 2021 Full Review Allison Shoemaker Fox 10 Phoenix Expect woe and warmth in equal measure, drawn out by a marvelous cast. Sep 16, 2021 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut The musical’s regional flair is still intact, with references to Tim Hortons, Roger’s Communication, and drinking Pepsis (I just wished they mentioned milk in a bag and ketchup chips). Yes, Canadian hospitality is a real thing. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 9, 2022 Full Review David Reddish Queerty The show doesnt have a plot so much as a mixture of character beats. Here, that doesnt just workit has a powerful effect. Rated: 4/4 Mar 13, 2022 Full Review Carson Timar Clapper Not only is Come From Away relevant in a political sense, but its heart and comforting emotion expressing that no matter how bad things get we will get through it feels perfect for the modern moment.

      Matt H Great!!! Such an important musical to create. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review BuzzyBeetle216 Very bad musical. Tell me, what happens in this movie? What is the plot? Why would I watch this movie when i could instead read a Wikipedia page? Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/18/23 Full Review Olivia E Between the backwater laughs this is ridden with racist, sexist, xenophobic & religious bigotry. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/19/23 Full Review Mar B Compelling, heart-wrenching, and fun. Not like a typical musical at all. The songs were easy to understand and advanced the plot. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review daniel r One of the 21st centuries greatest musicals is done well as a proshot. Creatively filmed. Powerful based on real life story about the power of human kindness on one of its darkest days. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review lauren s Amazing! we didn't know what to expect but it was fantastic. A musical filled with every emotion you could feel but you leave with a sense of togetherness and love. Music is brilliant, a play with a lot to it with little to see (in a sense of back drop) they do a lot with a little in an amazing way. Definite must see.
