Current Vice President-elect, Michael Pence, paid a visit to Broadway's revolutionary mega-hit, "Hamilton" this evening and reports from inside the theater confirm a less than enthusiastic reception for the former governor of Indiana.

According to Twitter users who attended the Friday night performance of the show, the forthcoming Vice President received a mixed reception from the packed house, with users confirming that Pence was both cheered and booed upon arrival.

Update: Audience members confirm that the audience's initial reaction extended throughout the performance, with notable reactions to many key lines in the show including a standing ovation for the line, "Immigrants, we get the job done" as well as responses to George Washington's warning to Hamilton "Winning is easy, young man, governing is harder" and a joke about a former vice president, "John Adams doesn't have a real job anyway."

Reports also confirm that Rory O'Malley, who currently plays King George III in the show, received such an enthusiastic response to the lyrics, "Do you know how hard it is to lead?" and "When your people say they hate you, don't come crawling back to me" that the actor had to take few moments to stop the song and re-claim focus. Another reaction came at the end of "Cabinet Battle #2," when Thomas Jefferson notes to Hamilton, "Daddy's calling."

Following the performance, the cast addressed the Vice President-elect in a prepared statement, imploring him to take the message of the show to heart and govern on behalf of all Americans.
