U.S. Vice President-elect Mike Pence arrives at Trump Tower in New York, U.S., on Friday, Nov. 18, 2016.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence took in a performance of the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton” on Friday night, and ended up becoming part of the show when the cast delivered an impassioned message to him during curtain call.
Theatergoers quickly began tweeting about seeing Pence — who was joined by his daughter Charlotte and his nieces and nephew — with some claiming “the entire theater just booed him” while others posted video showing more mixed reactions.
Word also made its way to the show’s cast who didn’t miss their shot at addressing Pence directly while taking their final bows.
“Vice President-elect Pence, I see you’re walking out, but I hope you will hear just a few more minutes,” actor Brandon Victor Dixon — who plays Aaron Burr in the show — called out.
Pence had begun to leave the theater, but turned and stopped to listen to Dixon’s nearly two-minute address, according to people in the crowd.
“We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our friends, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights,” Dixon said, reading off a piece of paper. “But we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”
“We truly thank you for sharing this show, this wonderful American story told by a diverse group of men, women of different colors, creeds and orientation,” Dixon said.
“We don’t have to agree, but we have to live here,” Dixon finished to boisterous cheers from the crowd.

“Hamilton” has received raves not only for its story and music, but for its diverse casting, including a Latino actor in the title role. Show creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and cast members even recorded a series of PSAs urging Latinos to vote in the election.
President-elect Donald Trump campaigned on a vow to deport millions of undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. and Trump’s transition team — led by Pence — is filled with hardline anti-immigration advocates.
