HAMILTON's Brandon Victor Dixon stopped by CBS THIS MORNING to speak about Mike Pence's visit to the November 18th performance of the hit Broadway show. Following the curtain call of the performance, the Tony nominee addressed the Vice President-elect directly with a call for unity and representation. On Saturday morning, Donald Trump condemned the cast on Twitter, accusing them of "harassing" Pence, and demanding an apology.

During this morning's appearance, Dixon explained that the producers, the cast and the creative team decided it was important to make a statement following the show because they recognized that the show is an 'inherently American story." He went on to say, "We wanted to stand up and spread a message of love, of unity." Regarding Trump's accusation of "harassment", Dixon commented "conversation is not harassment." He also shared his belief that there was "nothing to apologize for", explaining "Art is meant to bring people together." He also expressed his appreciation to Mike Pence for listening to what the cast had to say.
