Vice President-elect Mike Pence says he was not offended by the statement directed at him from the cast of the Broadway hit “Hamilton” following the Friday night performance he attended.
“I really enjoyed watching Hamilton,” Pence told host Chris Wallace during a pre-taped appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” “It was a real joy to be there. I heard a few boos. I wasn’t offended by what was said.”
The hit show depicts the life of America’s first treasury secretary, Alexander Hamilton, through hip-hop and traditional Broadway numbers. Following the performance, the actor Brandon V. Dixon, who plays America’s third vice president, Aaron Burr, told the crowd that Pence was in the audience, thanked the Indiana governor for attending, and proceeded to implore the incoming 48th vice president to renounce his and his running mate’s often divisive rhetoric. The statement was written by the cast with input from the show’s creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and its producer, Jeffrey Seller, as reported by Broadway.com.
