Customer Reviews

Move over HamiltonSeriously, move over. Ever heard of Gander, Newfoundland? Me neither. Yet on 9/11, it hosted 7000 people from 38 airplanes that could not enter US airspace for a week. This is the story of the generous and resourceful smallish city that welcomed these passengers (as they called them The Come From Aways) from all over the world with open arms, and gave them a safe place while the rest of the world went wild. It's nominated for a Tony, as is the amazing Jenn Colella who plays one of the pilots, the first female American Airlines pilot EVER to be more specific. Listen to her sing Me and the Sky and try to resist falling in love with this musical and story. And the added bonus of Kendra Kassebaum's beautiful soprano voice in several roles seals the deal for me.5Impressive MusicalI first heard about this musical on the Tony Award show. I saw the cast perform Welcome to the Rock. I had read The Day the World Came to Town: 9/11 in Gander, Newfoundland, so I knew some of the story. I had to own the music.I fell in love with the music. As I listened to the music, I fell in love with the people. I rooted for Nick and Diane. I hoped Hannah would be reunited with her son. Beverley's story was so powerful and gut-wrenching. My favorite songs are Welcome to the Rock, Heave Away, Screech In, Me and the Sky, and Something's Missing (because it resonated with me).You could easily get this as a digital download without missing much. The booklet with the CD has some background information, but almost no pictures and no lyrics.Anyone who would like to know more about Gander's part in Operation Yellow Ribbon would probably enjoy this musical.5A musical about the best of humankind in one of the darkest hours - listen and become obsessedA musical about events surrounding 9/11 at first didn't sound good.... then I listened to this. This is a joyful celebration of the best in people and how in a very trying situation the small towns in Newfoundland showed the very best in human nature. Even if you never get to see the musical this cast album will let you into the show and allows you to picture the entire thing in your mind.5Somewhere in The Middle of Nowhere!This unique spirited and inspiring musical is about the events of September 11, 2001 in Gander, Newfoundland, Canada. As the musical begins, the first song welcomes you to the rock. Gander is one of the largest airports in the world and was the place to stop for fuel before jets. On that fateful day, the USA stopped all air travel. 38 jumbo jets landed in Gander. The town from 9,000 to 19,000 overnight. The town welcomed the weary travelers who were unaware of what was happening in New York, Shanksville and the Pentagon.With remarkable storytelling in comprising what happened for five days, the weary travelers made lifelong friends and bonded during the worst of the tragedies. They're lives were never the same again and none of us are since that day.I have been weary of seeing or hearing anything about September 11, 2001. I live in New Jersey and we're not far from ground zero. Every town has a memorial to remember those lost. Would I like to see the show, yes and no. This musical is about humanity though. Maybe one day, I'll see the show on Broadway. The soundtrack makes me want to see it more.5You must find a way to see this showI was fortunate enough to see this at Schoenfeld and I am obsessed with seeing it again. I ordered this as soon as I got home. It leaves out enough that if you listen before you see it there will still be some surprises. I cannot express how phenomenal this show was. My mom was from "The Rock" and the description of the people fit her perfectly, brought a tear to my eye. She was so proud of her people when this story came out. My parents met in Gander when she worked there. God bless the Islanders5CD is so well doneAfter hearing the story of where thousands of air travelers were taken after 9/11, I wanted to hear the songs from the play. Hearing what the frightened visitors who didn't know what was happening and how the people on the island in New Foundland had to almost double their population and find everything those people needed and shared everything they had , was inspirational. After listening to the CD multiple times I finally saw a touring company put on the production. It was a great experience. From "Welcome to the Rock" through the rest of the music, you hear rousing voices and at the end compassionate humanity.5Well Worth Your TimeI was lucky enough to see this show on Broadway and it provided one of the most joyous nights I've ever had in a theatre. This recording captures the spirit of the show I saw, with all the wonderful and fleshed out performances coming across. I still can't listen to the ending song without tearing up. This is a show about people and humanity, and the recording preserves that. This is not a song after song recording but one that actually has dialogue weaving in and out, just as in the show. You can recognize the characters by voice and, believe me, you will start to identify with them. I have had friends listen and they could follow along without having seen the show. Ideally, you'll be able to see the show at some point, but this cd works for me until I can see it again.5Renew Your HopeThis is an amazing musical. It's one of the best musicals to come out in a very long time. The cast is fabulous! Listen to Jenn Colella sing "Me and the Sky" and you end up singing along! It's the best of human kindness and we need this so much, right now. I listen to this to offset the noise coming from the news these days. It's poignancy comes through in "I Am Here." "Blankets and Bedding" will have you laughing out loud at a situation that you never, ever thought you'd find humor in. The "38 Planes Reprise" has a beat that mimics a plane taking off into the sky. Remembering what it felt like to look up into the sky the week after 9/11, I remember the emptiness and awfulness of not seeing any planes flying up above. Especially at night. When you hear Jenn sing "We just crossed the Canadian border. Welcome back to the U. S of A!" your heart will skip a beat. At this point, I usually burst into tears and I'm always in my car at a stoplight, much to my chagrin. Hoping, no one is watching or listening if my window is down. The bar music with Celtic flutes, and a Scottish/Irish flare will make you smile. This is pure joy!! It will renew your hope in human nature. I can't wait until I can actually see this musical. I hope it flies into Chicago soon.5Such a heartwarming and wonderful story!If I could give this cast album more than 5 stars, I would! I have seen Come From Away three times, and still, every time I listen to the cast album I am caught up in the story. On 9/11, when US airspace was closed, the town of Gander welcomed thousands of stranded travelers into their communities and homes. The story of how the locals came together to take care of people who could not go home is a demonstration of true humanity, kindness, and courage. If you get a chance to see the show, you should go. If you don't get a chance to see the show, listen to the cast album.5Brilliant Artistry!This has got to be the most magnificent CD I have purchased in recent years. I want to see the show, but by listening to the CD, I feel like I have already seen the show. I received on Friday, March 24, and now only March 28, the tunes already swim in my head. It is an obscure Newfie folk feel, but Maritime/ Irish decent folk music is my favorite genre. The music style and words and stories combined send the base story line, but also an artistic depth unmatched in recent years. I would have preferred the recorded version without the F bomb and the S word in this format. That is the only reason I will not be sharing with my middle school students. I have shared the Gander, NF story since students going through these days have no recollection of 9/11. Brilliant!I have my tickets for the show! I imagine that my view of this will only get better. This has rarely left my CD player in my car in the 5 months I have had the album. I was sad when I didn't have it in Newfoundland this summer.5
