The national touring cast of "Come From Away."

‘Come From Away’ opening night will feature panel discussion with those who inspired show

“Come From Away,” the true-story musical about airplane passengers stranded in Gander, Newfoundland, following the 9/11 attacks, will open at the Fox Theatre on June 25.

Following that opening night production, three of the people the story is based on – Claude Elliott, the former Mayor of Gander, Beverley Bass, a former American Airlines pilot and Kevin Tuerff, a passenger and author of “Channel of Peace: Stranded in Gander on 9/11” – will participate in a discussion panel. The trio will be joined by Nadia Theodore, Consul General of Canada.

The 7:30 p.m. show is presented without intermission and will end at approximately 9 p.m.; the panel will run for about 30 minutes.

“Come From Away” was nominated for seven Tony Awards in 2017 and won for best direction of a musical. It’s still playing to sold-out crowds on Broadway; this national tour launched in October.

The show will play the Fox through June 30. Tickets are available by visiting FoxTheatre.org/ComeFromAway, by calling 1-855-285-8499, or by visiting the Fox Theatre box office.
