VP-elect Mike Pence booed, harassed at ‘Hamilton’ by cast and audience
Vice President-elect Mike Pence was booed Friday night at a performance of the Broadway hit “Hamilton.”
Pence was walking to his seat at the Richard Rodgers Theatre when a few scattered claps turned into a thundering chorus of boos.
The crowd continued to mock Pence throughout the performance, including during the song “Yorktown,” when Alexander Hamilton and Marquis de Lafayette sang “Immigrants, we get the job done.” They high-fived each other as the audience cheered.
Brandon Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, addressed Pence after the curtain call, saying the diverse cast is “anxious” about his administration.
