Over the weekend, Mike Pence and his family reportedly popped up at a Hamilton show in New York City (yeah that show that’s sold out until 2019). Unfortunately for Pence, the crew stopped the show upon realising his attendance.
Donald Trump wasn’t happy.
Our wonderful future VP Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing.This should not happen!” he tweeted. “The theater must always be a safe and special place.The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!” Trump added.
Brandon from the musical was the one to address Pence…
Vice president-elect, I see you walking out, but I hope you will hear us,” said Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr. He also told the audience, “There’s nothing to boo here; we’re all sharing a story of love.”
“We welcome you, and we truly thank you for joining us here at Hamilton: An American Musical — we really do,” he continued. “We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.
“We truly thank you for sharing this show, this wonderful American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds and orientations,” Dixon concluded to Pence.
