On November 19, 2016, Vice-president elect Michael Pence attended a Broadway production of Hamilton. Reports from many media outlets suggest Mr. Pence was also greeted with clapping, but the boos of the audience were evident.

Following the production, Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr in Hamilton read a statement from the stage.

The New York Times reports a show spokesman as stating, “Mr. Pence stood in the hallway outside the entrance to the auditorium and heard the full remarks.”

On November 19, 2016, Donald J. Trump, President-elect, tweeted his displeasure with Broadway’s treatment of Pence, writing “Apologize!”
