Try, if you must, to resist the gale of good will that blows out of “Come From Away,” the big bearhug of a musical that opened on Sunday night at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater. But even the most stalwart cynics may have trouble staying dry-eyed during this portrait of heroic hospitality under extraordinary pressure.
Come From Away speaks the common language of just folks, and it sings and dances with the authentic inspirationof Newfoundland’s Celtic-based music, suffused with the hypnotic thrum of the bodhrán, the adrenalin rush of fiddle and strings, the soaring lilt of whistles and Uilleann pipes and the soulful underpinning of a harmonium.
"With the arrival of “Come From Away” to Broadway’s 2016-17 season, joining such accomplished new shows as “Dear Evan Hansen” and “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812,”
the Tony race for best musical of the year just got interesting."
