Come From Away has been nominated for 7 Tony Awards, including the coveted Best Musical!

The new Broadway musical celebrates the people of Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador who welcomed strangers from around the world into their town and homes during the dark days of 9/11.

The town of Gander doubled in size in a matter of hours as 38 diverted planes and over 6,500 people landed there on September 11, 2001 when United States air space closed.

The Tony Awards will be handed out on Sunday, June 11 in New York City.
