NEW YORK (AP) Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. first daughter Ivanka Trump welcomed a new musical celebrating Canadian compassion following 9/11.
Trudeau, Trump, and some 120 ambassadors from around the world attended the show Come From Away, on Wednesday, March 15, at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in New York.
New York is where most of the 3,000 victims of the attacks died.
The musical is set in the small Newfoundland town of Gander, which opened its arms and homes to some 7,000 airline passengers diverted there when the U.S. government shut down its airspace.
“The world gets to see what it is to lean on each other and be there for each other through the darkest times,” Trudeau said in remarks before the show.
