The hit musical Come From Away—and its remarkable true story about how the people of Gander banded together after 9/11 to help the 6,500 airline passengers stranded in their town—has been embraced by audiences the world over. The Tony-nominated Broadway production has played over 1,000 performances at the Schoenfeld Theatre; the musical won the 2019 Olivier Award for Best New Musical for its London premiere; and it’s played sold-out engagements in Australia and Canada. Now comes an intimate new documentary, You Are Here, about the same events that inspired the musical. This September 11, Fathom Events will screen the documentary in movie theaters nationwide for one night only. In the exclusive clip above, watch as the community of Gander, Newfoundland share their first reactions to hearing that David Hein and Irene Sankoff planned to turn their story into a musical.
