The ensemble of actors in this play were all outstanding. It is worth a visit just to see the way the actors perform in their different roles. I wondered how they could do a musical about this story but it is so so well written....More

Based on the story of Gander Newfoundland on 9/11 I found the play thoroughly entertaining! I loved the female pilot her voice was amazing. It was heartwarming to see the way the town pulled together during such a difficult time. I loved the book too!...More

So inventive, Show moves quickly and the set and characters shift with just an accent change and a move of a chair. The ensemble was brilliant with each actor standing out. Of course the Female Pilot does shine a bit above the rest. This is...More

I had been waiting for a play to blow me away for some time. This was IT. Right from the start you are pulled into the story. You can't help but feel emotion throughout the play. Truly spectacular music, acting, set design. A must see.

Hard to believe that they made an uplfting, positive story about 9/11, but they did. This is definitely story driven. The songs explain everything. The actors play a variety of roles. The set is minimalistic. There is no intermission, but the evening flew by. HIGHLY...More

About on par with a high school production. Set, costumes, singing and acting was not impressive. Spend your money elsewhere.

Amazing story about an unusual event told onstage. Witty dialogue and fast pace keep this musical interesting.

In New York as two moms with their Broadway loving teenage children. The teens picked the show to see. Started to listen to the music in advance of the show and expectations were low (just being honest). The performance was fabulous and so much more...More

I was really looking forward to this one because of the story, and I was not disappointed in that regard. The story was well and concisely told and the acting/staging was very good. The singing and dancing were, to be charitable, at the pretty good...More

How anyone came up with the concept of a musical about a diverted plane, its passengers and crew on 9/11 ending up in Newfoundland is beyond me but my does it work. One hour and 40 minutes of pure genius. I hope it comes to...More

I think a discussion should take place prior to the show. Then the performance will be extremely meaningful.
