Part of Hancher's Broadway Series

Broadway’s COME FROM AWAY is a Best Musical winner all across North America!

This New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

Don't miss this breathtaking musical written by Tony Award nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, "It takes you to a place you never want to leave!"

On 9/11, the world stopped.

On 9/12, their stories moved us all. 

*Instead of appearing at Hancher Auditorium this October, the show will now come to Iowa City for three performances on Tuesday, June 4; Wednesday, June 5; and Thursday, June 6, 2024. If you have already purchased your subscription package as of June 7,  you will have received an email from the Hancher Box Office with options regarding this change.
