EPUB ✰ Come From Away: Welcome to the Rock: An Inside Look at the Hit Musical (English Edition) Autor Irene Sankoff – Stg2bio.co

I knew that the musical, Come From Away, was quite successful However, since I was living in Manhattan on that fateful 9 11, I thought that I would never see Come From Away I thought that it would bring back too many memories of an impossibly stressful, sad and difficult time Then, this past spring, a friend got tickets for us and off we went, only for me to conclude that Come From Away was a fantastic show and one that was uplifting I immediately began proselytizing for this musical, telling friends to see it Of course, not everyone can get to Broadway, but this book will give readers a rich flavor of the play and its context.Illustrated with photos of Gander and its surroundings, with sections on history and context, comment and information on the folks whose creation it was the authors of this book, by the way , interviews with the cast and residents, and dialogue from the play s book, Come From Away includes so much.Given how much I loved the show and the people of Gander as they were portrayed, I was absolutely thrilled to be given an e galley of this title by NetGalley and the publisher, in return for an honest review I give it 4.5 5 stars.

So Deeply Because We Come From Everywhere, We All Come From Away On September 11, 2001, four planes carried out an assault on the United States Immediately all airspace in the US was closed Airplanes that were enroute to locations within the states were diverted to other countries The airport in Gander, Newfoundland, received 38 planes The town itself had fewer than 10,000 residents The planes carried a total of 6,579 people No one knew when the planes would be able to leave or were they would be going But all the people were housed, fed, clothed, and much.Irene Sankoff and David Hein, two Canadian playwrights, were intrigued by the stories and went to the ten year anniversary get together in Gandor From the people they met there and their stories, they wrote musical COME FROM AWAY It tells of those planes, passengers, crew, and the residents of Gander and some surrounding towns during the five days of the emergency.The play garnered several Tony nominations, winning one While it was not named the best musical of the year, it is the best play I have seen in than a decade When the audiences refused to leave after the house lights went on, continuing to applaud and cheer until the orchestra had left the stage, I knew I wasn t the only one who felt that way.COME FROM AWAY AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE HIT MUSICAL is an annotated exploration of the musical from its development to success on stage It provides a complete script along with side notes and parts that were cut A lot of copy is devoted to the back stories as well as the actual people who were involved in Gander that fateful week and concludes with an update on many of the people who are portrayed in the production.COME FROM AWAY is very well written, engrossing, uplifting, story of people meeting a crisis and rising to absorb and conquer it It includes ups, downs, and lots of humor It s first person history of an event that touched almost everyone in the US on 9 11, an event that still affects us and our country If you haven t seen the play yet, the book will provide a lot of background that will explain some of the things delivered on stage If you have seen it, it will add a lot to your understanding of those momentous days. Great book Whether you ve seen the show or not, this is a great addition to your library. I m seeing the musical for the second time and highly recommend it If it comes near you, don t miss it A different 9 11 story when 38 jumbo planes landed in Gander, Newfoundland and stayed five days.
