It has been announced this week that David Thaxton will join the West End company of Come From Away, which continues to run at the Phoenix Theatre.
The award-winning actor, who has performed in shows such as Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera, will replace David Shannon in the roles Kevin T/Garth and others from 9 September.
Come From Away tells true story of how the residents of Gander, Newfoundland welcomed the passengers of planes from around the world following 9/11. Cultures clashed, and nerves ran high, but as uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
