Hilary?

But that doesn't matter, because we're all here. And with all of our differences we have one thing in common. We're all gay.

I can't image she is going to the theater two nights before the debate.

My guess is that Obama is making a surprise appearance or Trump(Hopefully not) . He had that bizarre "Les Deportables " incident the other day and has played "Music Of The Night" and "Memory" at his rallies. He also has claimed he saw the original production of Evita 6 times and produced a short lived play in 1971  so I guess you can sadly call him a theater nerd. If Trump is there ,hope he dosent realize that they did that fundraiser for Hilliary and that Lin is supporting her.....

Obama was in DC all day for the museum opening and I didn't hear anything about him traveling today. 

 

Interesting.

Saw the matinee.  On the way out saw K9 dogs heading in, guys in secret service vests and lots of guys with terrorism task force and heave machine guns and vests there.  So whoever it is it's someone very high profile.

Very few people would get that much security. Most likely only Obama (doubt he's seeing it), Biden, Trump, Clinton, maybe Paul Ryan and John Kerry.

Thank you for your detailed level of security clearances, broadwaydevil.

I'm thinking either Netanyahu or Trump. I'm leaning toward the former, but I wouldn't be surprised if somebody on Trump's team encouraged him to be prepared to drop a Hamilton reference during Monday's debate.

Just sat down, word going around the theatre is that it's Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister. TSA is here, very thorough security...even better then at the airport! They let us in starting at 6:45. 

I highly doubt the producers would want trump to see the show. The show even had a fundraiser with Hillary.

It'd be slightly awkward if it was Trump considering Oak posted a 'f*** Trump' photo on his Twitter earlier and I'm sure most of the cast feel similarly.

I would hope that the producers of Hamilton would not actively restrict Trump from seeing the show...

The UN is in session.  So, it could be Netanyahu or Putin or Erdogan.  We will know eventually!

Because as intensely as many here dislike him, you're running a public theater, open to anyone who wishes to purchase a ticket and barring him because you don't like him or his political views is sinking to his level, doing the very thing to him that disgusts us about him. Make sense?

So let him buy a ticket for 2018 like everybody else.  Why should house seats be provided to him? If the company loathes his policies, fascism and racism (and why shouldn't they?).  He's not being denied access, just not given priority seating via producers/others' house seats..

Who's providing him house seats? It wasn't him going tonight. It was just a hypothetical, philosophical discussion. Get a grip, dude.

A) Nobody said house seats, and B) UncleCharlie nailed it. It would be unfortunate to live in a society wherein we can limit access to theatre and art based on political views, no matter how reprehensible we might find them to be.
