Crowd Boos Vice President-Elect Mike Pence at Hamilton Performance, Cast Delivers Important Message

It would seem fitting that the Vice President-elect would attend a performance of the hit Broadway show, Hamilton: An American Musical. That is, if the future Vice President wasn’t a perceived homophobe who bashes immigrants and is currently forming an administration full of racists. (Too harsh?)

Vice President-elect Mike Pence attended the Friday (Nov. 18) performance of Hamilton. However, his presence was not received well. While walking to his seat in Richard Rodgers Theatre, Pence was booed by the crowd.

Hamilton features a diverse cast comprised of different races, ethnicities, and sexual orientations. Given Pence’s stances on certain issues such as immigration and the LGBT community, Twitter was quick to join in with a collective “cyber boo.”

Following the performance, the cast had a special message for Pence (who was already walking out). Brandon Dixon (who portrays Aaron Burr) encouraged Pence to be inspired by Hamilton and to “uphold our American values and work on behalf of ALL of us.”

Unfortunately, Hamilton creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda was not present to welcome the Vice President-elect to the show. I’m sure he would have had much to say about Pence’s appearance. While hosting SNL in October, Miranda devoted his musical opening monologue to criticize then-Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

    This is why Trump won.
    To drain this disrespectful, trashy swamp.
    When Democrats go low, they really,/i> go low!

    God bless America…
