Travac Tours is pleased to announce a special program to see Come From Away, the award winning musical about Newfoundland’s generosity during the 9/11 crisis in Toronto
Ben Brantley, chief theatre critic for The New York Times, wrote “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 Broadway. But even the most stalwart cynics may have trouble staying dry-eyed during this portrait of heroic hospitality under extraordinary pressure.
Travac Tours will be offering special departures to Toronto on April 13, April 20, April 27 and May 11 so you can enjoy Come from Away.

Kelly Nestruck of The Globe and Mail wrote that “the heartwarming musical lives up to the hype” and that “the accessible story, strong emotional core and gorgeous songwriting should not distract from how original and smart this gem of a musical is. Robert Cushman of the National Post called the production “outstanding.” Liz Braun of the Toronto Sun gave the show a perfect 5-star review, writing “Blame Canada: a grim day in American history has been transformed into a joyous and emotional musical about the indomitable human spirit. Alan Henry of Broadway World said “You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll be a better person when you leave the theatre. Don’t miss ‘Come From Away’.”[
