Come From Away stops the world's biggest hit after the return


The biggest scream in the world is now worrying when some Newfoundlanders have taken the plan of a theater company from Toronto to organize a ceremony on the continent.

On Friday afternoon, Mirvish Productions said its marketing department believed that the complete crew plan would be completely Come from afar the audience would celebrate "the unique culture of Newfoundland".

"In our excitement, we have made the wrong move and we apologize," he said.

"It is true that many people in Newfoundland have accepted an exception to the damage that was going on outside the true landscape that created the tradition. We heard them loud and clear and we will no longer organize creaking."

A representative of the company said that no one was immediately available to talk Friday night to discuss the decision.

The location issue

As a feedback on the plan, a web Thursday, where a Newfoundland resident sold e-mails to Mirvish, spent a webcast to express his concern about location selection.

"It's ironic that non-Newfoundlanders were flying with us and now stole our tradition," wrote Nicole Collins. "I expect better than a company that has spent so much time and money for this production."

The unanswered answer of someone in the company told Collins: "I'm sorry that we were upset and many other Newfoundland people. That was certainly not our purpose. We do not steal your culture; we think we're celebrating it."

The email describes how the "promotional event" was designed to pay more attention to the show, and claimed that more attention was paid to the headlight of the media.

"More people who see the exhibition will be more exposed to the reasons for visiting your province," said the email address.

"We believe that we do not take anything from Newfoundland and Labrador, but we are trying to build a higher profile for your country and its culture, which we think can benefit your province."

A "stupid" idea

Collins told CBC News that the whole idea of ​​stubbing outside the province was illogical, but the company's response put teeth on the edge.

"If it were just someone who made this event in Toronto without profit, I would still think it's silly," Collins said.

"But the added fact is that they do it at the end of the show, and this will attract people and earn money with him, which certainly adds another layer of irritation."

Collins said she would not name what happened with cultural appropriation, but despite the recognition that the tradition is "modern, and not something that many people are taking seriously," she said she still feels that the company "steals "the aspect of culture in Newfoundland – one always wanted to greet foreigners in the province.

Keith Vokey, whose father is largely responsible for the development of the ceremony in what he is today, agrees: squealing is merely a creaking if it appears in his birthplace, he said.

"In my opinion, you can not be honored Newfoundlander if you have not yet come to Newfoundland," said Vokey, the master screaming at Christian's Pub at St. Paul's. John & # 39; s.

Tradition or money?

Despite the enough enthusiasm for Mirvish to undermine his idea, the plan did not disturb all. Bob Hallett, the former music adviser for Come from Away, considered that tradition was always an easy means of profit.

"This is a marketing venture for Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation, as this is a trigger for marketing everywhere," Hallett said.

Bob Hallett did not mind the promotion. (CBC)

"It's a great way to get people to the bars, it's a great way to get people to our culture, and I think the Come From Away producers in Toronto recognize this and just want some fun, and I think for it to be we take it so seriously, it's a sign of our general nonsense. "

The original plan for setting up the Guinness world record for the biggest ever in Toronto Elgin Theater has now replaced another promotion: sending "four lucky couples" to attend the July presentation for the official spell at Gander.
