Come from Away is one of my favorite Broadway shows and should have beat out Dear Evan Hanson for the majority of the Tony awards in their award year (not because Hansen is bad, but because Come From Away is Soooooo good). Come From Away is very carefully written, directly and constructed musical about one of the most memorable sad days in many people's lives today (9/11), but provides a different optimistic and less dark lens for remembering the day and next few days after. And it's a great vehicle for young people to learn about 9/11 as well.
The cast was fabulous, the direction was great, the music is catchy, emotional, and excellently pays homage to the setting of this story. It's only about 90-100 minutes long and without an intermission. And that decision really is perfect for this particular story which they're telling. The fact that the cast is minimal and every cast member plays at least one Newfoundlander and one visitor is a very poignant and clever directing decision. The script is quickly paced for a musical and most of the songs keep moving the narrative forward. Overall the piece effectively fits lots of interesting actual stories into one big story in a heartwarming way. Everyone with AppleTV should feel exhilarating and excited for the change to watch this for such a small cost of any. Do yourself a favor and see the movie and the show when safe. The show was a big sold-out hit with a cult following for a reason.
