"Of the many things Come From Away wants to be about, September 11 is pretty far down on the list. That robs it of the urgency, authenticity, and soul it would need to be a grand trek rather than a mildly pleasant detour."

I haven't seen the show, but this was a gut feeling I had about its intentions, as a New Yorker. I hated feeling almost proprietary about a tragedy like no other -- it seemed inappropriate to question a show that wants to heal, even if not focused on the actual wound. But this review articulates and amplifies persuasively some of those concerns.
