by Irene Sankoff and David Hein (Mirvish). Newfoundlanders open their homes to stranded passengers following the September 11 terrorist attacks. Continuing at the Elgin after an 11-month run at the Royal Alex: February 5 to December 1 (no shows Sep 3-15), Tue-Sat 8 pm, mat Wed 1:30 pm, Sat-Sun 2 pm. $39-$169, limited rush $25 (premium tickets also available).


With astonishing warmth, Newfoundlanders welcome the traumatized passengers of planes rerouted to Gander on 9/11 in this home-grown Tony Award-winning 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.
