Cast of Hamilton Cast a Shadow on Pence

The Trump/Pence presidency might be something we have to accept, but those of us who understand them to be hierarchy builders certainly don't need to take it sitting down.

The cast of the Broadway smash hit Hamilton certainly isn't. Mike Pence and a few family members arrived at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City on Friday, only to be greeted with boos. At the end of the play, the cast joined hands and gave Mr. Pence his own curtain call. They asked audience members to get out their phones and record it and send it around the world.
"We, sir, we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights,” said Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, the nation’s third vice president, as his fellow actors joined hands. “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”
