COME FROM AWAY, the hit Broadway musical that was forced by the pandemic to shorten its previous Dallas Summer musicals engagement, returns March 8-20. The DSM and Broadway Across America (BAA) present the national tour of the musical about the small town that warmed the hearts of the world.
The musical tells the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded airline 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. On September 11, 2001 the world stopped. On September 12, their stories moved us all.
Single tickets for COME FROM AWAY start at $25 (pricing subject to change) and are on sale now at DallasSummerMusicals.org or by phone at 800-982-2787. Orders for groups of ten (10) or more may be placed by calling (214) 426-4768 or emailing Groups@DallasSummerMusicals.org.
