COME FROM AWAY officially opened on March 12th and was welcomed to Broadway with open arms and major acclaim—including a rave from Ben Brantley of The New York Times. And if that wasn’t enough to cheer about, this new musical was all over the news thanks to a special visit from the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, who brought First Daughter, Ivanka Trump, as his guest, along with 125 UN Ambassadors from around the world and members of the Canadian Consulate. Tom Brokaw also did an amazing report for the Today Show, featuring the entire cast and members of the creative team, highlighting the need for this remarkable true story to be told right now.
