Article Pixel

Update: Brandon Victor Dixon has responded to Trump; see his tweet below.

Current Vice President-elect, Michael Pence, paid a visit to Broadway's revolutionary mega-hit, "Hamilton" last night and reports from inside the theater confirmed a less than enthusiastic reception. The forthcoming Vice President got a mixed reception from the packed as he was both cheered and booed upon arrival.

At the conclusion of the show, the production's current Aaron Burr, Brandon Victor Dixon, read a statement to the Vice President-elect on behalf of the company, available here.

This morning, Donald Trump sounded off on Twitter.

The short statement read by Dixon at the curtain call was:

"Vice President Elect Pence, welcome.

Thank you for joining us at Hamilton-An American Musical.

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.

We hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values, and work on behalf of ALL of us.

Thank you."
