The tour will launch at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre in October 2018.

The 9/11-inspired musical is selling tickets for performances on Broadway through May 20, 2018.

A third production of Come From Away will be staged at Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre beginning on Feb. 13, 2018.

Created by Canadian husband-and-wife duo Irene Sankoff and David Hein, Come From Away is set in Gander, N.L., in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.

The remote town provided refuge to 6,579 passengers and crew on 38 planes that were diverted when U.S. air space was closed.

The Tony-nominated show has already won outstanding musical honours from New York's Outer Critics Circle Awards and the Helen Hayes Awards in Washington, D.C.
