UPI News Service, 06/12/2017
Come From Away director Christopher Ashley says he would love to hear from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about his Newfoundland-set musical's win at the Tony Awards ceremony in New York Sunday night.
Ashley appeared in the Tonys press room after he won the prize for Best Direction of a Musical.
Asked by a journalist if he is hoping for a tweet from the social media-savvy politician, Ashley replied: "If I got one, it would blow my mind. He came to see the show and really spent so much time with the cast. ... He's a hero of mine."
Kevin Spacey hosted the gala honoring excellence in Broadway theater.
