On Sept. 11, 2001, following the terrorist attacks in New York City, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., 38 commercial airplanes were diverted to Gander, Newfoundland; when the 6,579 passengers landed, they found themselves stranded in a small town with a population half their size. How they and the town adjusted to a changed world on Sept. 12 is the basis of the upbeat musical with a book, music and lyrics by Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein.
