Review: The Herald Sun Digital Edition: Musical theatre at its best


*****

Of all the jewels in the musical theatre crown, few shine as brightly as newcomer Come From Away.

Not only does it present a perfect example of how intricate and skilled musical theatre can be, it breaks the mould and moves the medium into new directions.

This is a musical with a lot to say about compassion, inclusion and goodness without being mawkish or losing a raw edge.

It is the reason musical theatre lovers appreciate the medium so much because, at its best, it is uplifting, joyous, moving and a fine display of musicality, writing and acting.

If you haven't heard of this show yet, you will, because it's the talk of the town. There are few spontaneous standing ovations in Melbourne but this deservedly has one every night.

In telling the story of how the people of Gander, a small town in Newfoundland, Canada , embraced almost 7000 passengers on planes diverted in the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, it could have been stuck in sadness.

But there is plenty of humour , liveliness and it glows with warmth at its core.

Book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein are nuanced, accurate and full of spirit.

This slick, first-rate production is as good as the New York one but all the better because it is so far away from the original action but so close to the emotional impact.
