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! 'The Day the World Came to Town'

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 simply one of the best shows on Broadway. Loved it.

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 RECOMMEND.

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