I do understand why someone moved this from Come From Away to Come from Away, but everywhere it's listed it's either in all caps for the full title or the From is capitalized. Shouldn't the capitalization match the way the creators have chosen to capitalize it? It's on their site, their social media, everywhere I see it. --Siradia (talk) 03:50, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Wikipedia is pretty clear, under MOS:CT, that prepositions are only capitalized when five or more characters long. This contrasts with AP and APA, which capitalize at four or more, and MLA and Chicago, which almost never capitalize prepositions. Since most journalistic sources follow AP, those sources capitalize the preposition. And of course, the creators can do whatever they like. But on Wikipedia, those who are still recovering from the worstandlongestdiscussioninWikipediahistory are not particularly interested in negotiating another exception. That said, you could certainly nominate this page using WP:RM and see what the consensus is. Ibadibam (talk) 20:54, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
While it's possible that some sort of local consensus emerged to give those articles the "wrong" capitalization, it's more likely that the editors that have worked on those articles weren't aware of MOS:CT, didn't notice the mistake, or didn't care. A move request to change any of those titles to have lowercase prepositions would probably be successful. (With the exceptions of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, in which "off" is a particle, and Some Like It Hot, where "like" is a verb.) Part of the confusion is that AP Style calls for capitalization of prepositions of four characters or more, and since most of the sources we use for recent works are journalistic, we're used to seeing capitalization that differs from the style we use here.

An anon changed the setting from 2011 to 2001. Obviously, most of the story takes place in 2001, and it's been over a year since I saw the show, but doesn't it begin and end in 2011, with a "ten years ago..." frame? Ibadibam (talk) 18:51, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
Could someone explain what the term "sit down production" means.

It looks like a "sit-down" production is an established (non-tour) professional production outside of NY. I don't think it is needed so I will remove the descriptor. BOVINEBOY2008 12:45, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
