LikesWhat they loved

  • Everything
  • Great show
  • Did not know what to expect considering the slightly unusual subject matter for a musical but leaves you smiling and crying and wanting to see it all over again.
  • Where do I start?! Didn't really know what to expect but I was blown away. Very emotional and poignant story and show. Amazing choreography and creative use of a minimal set.
  • Everything
  • Everyone had their own special song and i liked the music the kind of country and irish themed music and bev bass
  • The songs!
  • I don't think I've ever felt a feeling like the one I felt whilst watching CFA. Indescribable joy. Music 10/10 Plot is great (even given what it's based on)
  • It warmed my heart.
  • Beautiful score, touching story, fabulous cast. What's not to like?
  • What a show, had me switching from laughing to crying throughout the show, how can a show about something so terrible be amazing.
  • Amazing use of limited props
  • Its the most beautiful show from its sound design, lighting design, music, acting to the story. It's a show that had helped me find friends across the world. A show that has made me more kinder as a person. It's a show that helped me realise being me is the best thing that I can be and when I'm me there is nothing in-between me and the sky. All I can do is love and appreciate every last second of the show This show is rooted so deeply in a true story. I laugh at some of the lines, I cry at others. Come From Away is a show rooted so deeply in a true story. Other shows are true stories, yes, but with much broader artistic liberties and don't truly follow what happened Come From Away doesn't do that Come From Away is the story of an event that changed the lives of people around the globe
  • A show that relies on a good story rather than technical spectacle. The way the UK west end show was staged was inventive and looked simple while being quite complex. The songs are catchy with some great harmonies
  • Music was very good
  • The incredible score, the emotion, THAT LINE in Me and the Sky, the spirit, the choreography, the inspiration....everything!
  • Such a beautiful show! Made me cry multiple times, but the story is also incredibly heartwarming.

DislikesWhat they didn't enjoy

  • Nothing
  • Loved it all.
  • nothing
  • No interval
  • Too short
  • Nothing to not like
  • You wish everywhere was like Gander
  • Took a while to get going. Didn’t understand the dialogue for the first 15 minutes. Don’t think it’s one for repeat visits.
  • Its over so fast!
  • It's too short! Although I respect the fact that this means it doesn't drag on, they tell the story that they want to without any waffle or irrelevant detours.
