5.0 star rating Jamie Richardson from Colbore, Ontario

DEEPLY MOVING AND HIGHLY ENTERTAINING

Wasn’t sure how a musical could possibly be made from this story and was honestly more than a little skeptical. Have never meant a standing ovation and applause more. All events are handled with just the right amount of humour and/or sorrow. The music and sound resonated well and we had no problem understanding any of the accents. The actors versatility was astounding and we have spent time just trying to remember who played who and it’s surprisingly difficult because they transformed themselves, and the settings, so well by incredibly simple means.

5.0 star rating Sharon G. from Buffalo, New York

MOVING, FUNNY, EXTRAORDINARY

This production is nothing short of amazing. The cast is on stage for 140 minutes without intermission and play both the passengers and the Newfoundlers, assisted by clever lighting and simple but effective stage props. The cast is talented, the music entertaining, and true story of human kindness and generosity moving. The light of the people of Gander in the midst of the darkest time in US history brings a sense of hope and a reminder that the world is a better place when we help another in need.

MY SON EXPERIENCED THIS

We have just bought tickets to attend Opening Night. so have not seen it yet, but he experienced it and I remember the phone call from him and his experience as a then single guy and the hospitality he received. Looking forward to seeing the show. He has come to DM from Madison WI

IF IT WASNT FOR HAMILTON, I WOULD GIVE THIS 5 STARS.

This was a great show. It hit on all the emotions; joy, fear, shame, sadness, funny. Cleverly written and amazing stage design. I could go back again and again and again. you will find yourself toe tapping to the music, crying with the characters, and laughing out loud. Everything you would want in a musical.

4.0 star rating Pete Watson from Vancouver , British Columbia

HORRIBLE SOUND DESIGN

Great play in every way , except for the sound design, incredibly frustrating to not be able to hear the dialogue.! Had to leave 3/4 through last night in Vancouver. Went my Newfie friend , I was driving her crazy with a question of what was said every minute.! Get that right .and I would love to go again

MUDDLED SOUND

Enjoyed the performance but found the acoustics sadly lacking. Many of the lines were hard to understand and some of the songs were smothered by the music.

3.0 star rating Chris Rowland from Oxford Station ON

POOR SOUND DESIGN

This was our first time visiting the NAC and so have no other performance to compare. Sound was very poor in the mezzanine. Could only make out about half of the spoken words and essentially none of the lyrics in choruses. I have to believe this is a sound design issue since I have not heard of acoustical issue in this venue. This irritant was offset by great performances.
