Ivanka Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were spotted attending a Broadway show together in New York this week.
They went to see “Come From Away,” which is a play about a small town coming together to help foreigners who were displaced or stranded after the 9/11 terror attacks. While Ivanka Trump and Justin Trudeau were not in the same vehicle, they did arrive in the same motorcade.
Just before the play Trudeau got up on stage to speak to the crowd, saying, “The world gets to see what it is to lean on each other and be there for each other through the darkest times,” he said. “There is no relationship quite like the friendship between Canada and the United States. This story, this amazing show, is very much about that, and it’s about friendship as well.”
The play’s website describes itself as:
COME FROM AWAY is the breathtaking new musical that played record-breaking engagements in La Jolla, Seattle, Washington D.C., and Toronto. Written by Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein, this is the stunning production from Tony-nominated director Christopher Ashley (Memphis) that the Los Angeles Times calls “an affecting and stirring new musical.”
In a heartbeat, 38 planes with 6,579 passengers were stranded in a remote town in Newfoundland. The locals opened their hearts and homes, hosting this international community of strangers–spurring unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances.
On September 11, 2001 the world stopped. On September 12, their stories moved us all.
