MINI REVIEW

With astonishing warmth, Newfoundlanders welcome traumatized passengers on planes rerouted to Gander on 9/11 in this home-grown Tony-nominated musical. The music is rollicking, the lyrics are clever and I dont think Ive ever seen a show with more heart. The cast, doubling up on roles as Ganderites and travellers, is uniformly excellent, especially Eliza-Jane Scott as a pilot and Kevin Vidal as a Black Brooklynite who cant believe his hosts openness. The show just barrels along even with some dark content and you never get a chance to catch your breath. But so what? Go with the flow and enjoy.
