The events of 9/11 still strike a raw nerve within the national psyche. The books, movies, and television programs that have been rolled out over the past 16 years have been graphic and numbing. Their blunt, straightforward portrayal of that morning have been, for the...More

I joined a few friends at the Schoenfeld theatre last night to see a performance of Come From Away. The theatre is a beautiful comfortable grand venue. There was no intermission so we didn't visit the bar or ladies room. The show was an outstanding...More

Being from Nova Scotia we could relate to the whole story. The Actors were awesome and musicians just as good. This was one of our favourite shows. What made it even better was a group of Newfoundland ladies that had made the trip to see...More

Couldn't understand how the events of 9/11 could be made into a musical, so I took a chance and purchased tickets long before it opened, and saw it in previews. WOW! This play triggered every emotion one could feel. It truly reflects the good in...More

Wonderful show at a lovely theater. We at in the balcony, second row. Wonderful seats and the theater is really nice. Good restrooms, too. The show, however, was amazing. Such a rough time and difficult subject, and yet, a wonderfully uplifting musical. The entire audience...More

We loved Come From Away. Highly recommend this musical to everyone. So funny, so emotional, so heartfelt. The music is uplifting and appropriate. The theater is small, all great seats.

We sat in the last row of the orchestra on the side and the seats were wonderful and comfortable. Saw everything on the stage except the very (same) side; it did not detract at all and i would sit in these seats again. Easy to...More

You must go see this warm, endearing, funny and poignant story of "what happened the day after 9/11" when 38 airplanes were forced to land in the tiny Newfoundland town of Gander. The staging and music are totally refreshing and compelling without falling chandeliers, whomping...More

My wife and I will be going to a Broadway play (Come from Away) this August. We have the following options for tickets: - Orchestra A1-A3. - Orchestra M1-M3. - Mezzanine D101-102 - Mezzanine F103-104. If it makes any difference, my wife and I are not the tallest people around (5 ft. 5in or 165 cm). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would go with Row M. I am very short, and sitting in the first few rows hurts my neck. I think you will love it from any seat. It left me with such a feel good feeling. Listening to the score afterwards-available on the... More

The best way to get to the theater is to take the A or C subway from Jay St - MetroTech Station to 42 St - Port Authority Bus Terminal. Jay St is just a couple of blocks from your hotel. Once you get to 42 St, take the north... More
