the Rock! MATTHEW MURPHY


MATTHEW MURPHY

Hello, Welcome to the Rock! When we traveled to Newfoundland in September 2011 on the tenth anniversary of 9/11, we had no idea that our journey would take us across the United States, to our home city of Toronto, eventually landing on Broadway. We spent a month in Gander, Newfoundland and the surrounding communities meeting with the locals, returning flight crews and pilots, and returning “come from aways” (a Newfoundland term for a visitor from beyond the island) who gathered to celebrate the hope that emerged from tragedy. We didn’t know what we were looking for, but thankfully the people of Newfoundland are incredible storytellers. As we heard numerous tales of ordinary people and extraordinary generosity, it became clear that during the week of 9/11, for the 7,000 stranded passengers and people of Newfoundland, the island was a safe harbor in a world thrown into chaos. We laughed, we cried, we were invited over for dinner and offered cars. We made lifetime friends out of strangers and we came home wanting to share every story we heard. During this show, you will hear the remarkable story of the little town that welcomed the world. You’ll also meet the extraordinary actors and band who tell the stories of 16,000 “Come From Aways” and Newfoundlanders each night on tour, and on Broadway at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. Through this journey, we’ve learned it’s important to tell stories about welcoming strangers and stories of kindness. It’s important to honor what was lost and commemorate what was found.

MATTHEW MURPHY

NEWFOUNDLAND FACTS The province of Newfoundland and Labrador has its own dictionary. The province’s language and dialect are so diverse, different communities spread throughout the island have their own unique accent. Newfoundland has no crickets, porcupines, skunks, snakes, or deer. It does, however, have over 100,000 moose. They were introduced over 100 years ago. The island has its own time zone, 30 minutes ahead of Atlantic Standard Time. The first known European presence in North America was not Christopher Columbus, but rather the Vikings. They arrived as L’ase aux Meadows, located at the very northern tip of the island, which is believed to be the location of a Viking colony. It was discovered in 1960 and it is believed that the settlement was founded around the year 1000. 8

Newfoundland used to be an independent country. In 1907, Newfoundland was given dominion status by the UK along with New Zealand, Australia, and Canada and remained so until 1949 when it joined the Canadian Confederation. Gander’s town roads are shaped like the head of a goose. Gander International Airport boasted Newfoundland’s first 24-hour liquor license and the province’s first escalator. Nearly all of Gander’s streets are named for famous aviators, including Amelia Earhart, Alcock and Brown, Charles Lindbergh, Eddie Rickenbacker, Marc Garneau, and Chuck Yeager. Newfoundland and Labrador was named one of the top 10 cultures in the world according to Macleans magazine.

SOME STEPS TO BECOMING A NEWFOUNDLANDER

01 02

10

LEARN THE LANGUAGE.

Hear tales of Newfoundlanders past while you eat bologna, capelin and repeat Newfoundland phrases.

TAKE A SHOT.

Back in World War II, an officer was stationed here and was offered some Screech. All the locals were tossing it back with nar’ a quiver, so he does too, and lets out an ear-piercing howl. “What was that ungodly screech!”

KISS THE FISH.

Now with every transformation comes a tiny bit of risk. And it’s the same to be a Newfoundlander, every person’s wish. So don’t be dumb, just take the plunge, and go on —kiss the fish!

9. Go easy with the perfume and cologne, many people are highly allergic. 10. I f you need assistance during the show, please go to your nearest volunteer usher. If additional assistance is needed, the usher will get the appropriate person to further help you. 11. Yes, the parking lot gets busy and public transportation is tricky, but leaving while the show is in progress or before the actors have taken their final bows is discourteous.

FOX FUN FACTS ROCKIN’ THE FOX Atlanta’s Fox Theatre has played host to many world renowned artists. In July 1976, Lynyrd Skynyrd performed for three consecutive nights, recorded the album One More from the Road, and donated $5,000 toward the Save the Fox campaign. In February 1993, the band played another three nights, one of which was broadcast on Pay Per View TV. Here are some other fun facts: • The Rolling Stones have performed at the Fox twice. In June 1978, the show was originally billed as “The Cockroaches” so as not to reveal the true performers before the concert announcement. • The Rolling Stones appeared next on October 26, 1981, for a standing-room only crowd. Before the show, the band had travelled to Savannah for a day trip and, due to dense fog in Atlanta, they were rerouted to Macon. The show was delayed by 90 minutes. • Bette Midler was scheduled to perform for three nights in February 1983. According to Alex Cooley, when she first arrived in her dressing room, Midler claimed that someone had died in that space and a ghost was present. She refused to perform. But after moving to another dressing room, she was content enough to go on stage.

COURTESY OF THE FOX THEATRE

• On New Year’s Day 2005, Broadway on Ice ice skating stars Nancy Kerrigan and Rudy Galindo, along with Broadway musical star Leslie Uggams, performed on the Fox stage. Creating the impromptu ice rink was an overnight process of repetitiously spraying water and quick freezing it.
