EXTRAORDINARY STORY AND PRODUCTION

I saw this when it opened on Broadway and absolutely loved it. This touring cast did a very good performance but there were sound issues for us on the mezzanine level. We missed about 30% of the spoken and singing dialogue as a result. The heavy Texan accent of the female airline captain was extremely difficult to decipher at times whereas the New York performance was 100% clear. Some of the Newfie dialogue was also extremely difficult to follow, even though I knew the story already. This was frustrating because my partner missed a lot of the details. Early in the performance, when the policeman described pulling over motorists and giving them a warning, the punchline got a laugh from some of the audience but the mezzanine audience could not really hear what he said regarding STFD. It was still a very enjoyable performance overall, but I was spoiled by having seen the original female lead on Broadway. She really was a standout whereas this cast was a solid performance among 12.

LIVED EVERY MOMENT

Brilliant production, sharing drama, empathy and the gratitude of life. The strength and bond of the human spirit rises above all during times of crisis. I laughed and cried as I sat on the edge of my seat, recounting the night of our personal trauma. My husband and I survived the sinking of the Costa Concordia off the island of Giglio, Tuscan coast in 2012. We lived every moment with the cast recounting our own rescue on a “rock” that housed a permanent population of 700 people. On this night, each and every local came together to aid with the rescue of 4000 passengers and crew. Medical services, crisis centers, housing, warmth, food clothing and shelter. Schools, churched and homes were opened, phones and computers had no limit as we made calls to our beloved families and homeland embassies sharing tales of our survival and pleading for help to get back home. Tragically 32 people lost their lives on this night, never to be forgotten – R.I.P. Friendships were sealed when we returned to thank, hug and share wine with Friends that have bonded forever. Thanks to resuers'. WE LOVED EVERY MOMENT - THANKS YOU!

A MARVEL OF KINETIC ENERGY

We LOVED CFA on Broadway in December and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see it in Omaha in 3/27/19 when it crossed our path there. Fantastic. The full house roared approval throughout. I’d forgotten how side-splittingly funny the show is in the middle portion and of course there wasn’t a dry eye in the theater when all is said and done. I’d like to single out Jane Bunting for kudos - Jen Colella is a tough act to follow but Ms Bunting was a superb Beverly Bass.

WE LOVED IT!

We saw Come From Away in Toronto and can’t wait to see it in KC too. It was a really amazing production and the story was so well written. It takes you by surprise over and over.

COME FROM AWAY

My wife Marsha saw Come From Away on Broadway in June. Great show. Fast moving & very interesting. No intermission. Very enjoyable.

GREAT CAST, COULD NOT HEAR IT IN AMPHITHEATRE LEVEL

Loved it, but the sound was seriously lacking at the amphitheatre level - could not clearly hear ANY of the actors when they spoke individually - really detracted from the show. My wife saw it in NYC originally and said the overall impact was much great. Hopefully they can fix this for future shows.

MUDDLED SOUND

Enjoyed the performance but found the acoustics sadly lacking. Many of the lines were hard to understand and some of the songs were smothered by the music.
