COME FROM AWAY comes to the Scranton Cultural Center for four performances April 5 – 7. This Tony Award-winning hit musical is based on the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them.

On September 11, 2001 the world stopped.  On September 12, their stories moved us all.

Charles McNulty of the Los Angeles Times called COME FROM AWAY “An affecting, stirring and unpretentious new musical.  Christopher Ashley’s production lets the simple goodness of ordinary people outshine sensational evil,” and Bob Verini of Variety raved, “Superb! Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein have forged a moving, thoroughly entertaining tribute to international amity and the indomitable human spirit.”

A “Best Musical” winner all across North America, the smash hit musical has won the Tony Award for “Best Direction of a Musical” (Christopher Ashley), 4 Olivier Awards (London) including “Best New Musical,” 5 Outer Critics Circle Awards (NYC) including “Outstanding New Broadway Musical,” 3 Drama Desk Awards (NYC) including “Outstanding Musical,” and many more accolades.

COME FROM AWAY performance times are Friday at 7:30PM, Saturday at 2PM and 7:30PM, and Sunday at 1PM. Tickets are available online at and in person at the Scranton Cultural Center box office. Box office hours are Monday – Friday 10AM – 5PM, Saturday 10AM – 2PM.

The show age recommendation is 10+ and the run time is 1 hour and 45 minutes with no intermission.
