Hamilton Cast Speaks Directly to Pence: ‘We Truly Hope That This Show Has Inspired You’

At the curtain call for tonight’s performance of Hamilton, the cast took a moment to deliver a special message directly to Vice President-elect Mike Pence in the audience.

Brandon Dixon asked Pence to just hear their message and discouraged people from booing (as some people did earlier).

He sincerely welcome Pence but told him people are “alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.”

“We truly hope,” Dixon said, “that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”
