Come From Away

May 23, 2017 New York, NY, USA

Come From Away National tour Baltimore

Who: Sean and I (if you don't know, this is a huge deal. Sean hates musicals and NYC) | Sean, my neighbors, my MIL, and I

What: Come from Away, the true story of 38 planes grounded after 9/11 and the town that took them in. | tickets

When: April 2017 | April 2019

Where: Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, Broadway | Hippordrome Theatre, Baltimore, MD

Why: I'd been dying to see it before it even came to Broadway. It was actually nearby in DC, but by the time I found out, no good tickets were available.| Because it's my favorite show ever and I wouldn't miss the tour stopping in town for the world!

Thoughts:We got tickets as part of a Show Score Social (if you don't know, Show Score is basically the Rotten Tomatoes of Broadway, plus they offer all sorts of great deals and contests!). The pro to this was affordable orchestra seats and the chance to mingle with other theatre geeks after the show. The con was not being able to choose specific seats. Thankfully, Gerald Schoenfeld is fairly small, so even though our orchestra seats were in the dead last row (and on the right, which is my worst nightmare due to my ear issues), I could see and hear everything just fine. 

I hesitate to call any show my favorite, but if you pressed me, this would be the one. I am obsessed! The soundtrack plays in my car constantly, and I social media lurk anything to do with the show like nobody's business. Come from Away has only been on Broadway 2–3 months, yet they've already announced a national tour—so you know it's gotta be amazing!

Update: nearly two years after seeing CFA for the first time, I was able to see the show twice more when the tour stopped in Baltimore! It is as amazing as ever and I loved having the opportunity to share it with friends and family who hadn't yet seen it. Rumor has it the tour is stopping in Washington, DC later this year, so I plan to be back again!

Have you had a chance to see Come from Away yet? Give the soundtrack a listen here (warning, once you start, you won't be able to stop!)
