A musical with book, music, and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, Come From Away was workshopped and first produced at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario in 2012 and 2013. It also had a staged reading at Goodspeed Musicals’ 2013 Festival of New Artists in CT. In 2015 it was co-produced as a full production by La Jolla Playhouse and Seattle Repertory Theatre, playing at both venues. The production moved on to the Ford's Theatre in Washington, DC and Toronto’s Royal Alexandra Theatre in 2016 before opening on Broadway in 2017.
