Pence took a break from working on the Trump administration’s transition to see “Hamilton,” the most popular show on Broadway. He reportedly was received with boos mixed with some cheers as he entered the theater.
 
At the end of the show, one of the actors asked Pence not to leave the theater so a statement from the cast could be read. 
 
"Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us at 'Hamilton: An American Musical,' " actor Brandon Victor Dixon said onstage. 
 
"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, sir. We hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us."
 
Late Friday night, “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda endorsed the cast’s statement, tweeting he was proud of the cast and Dixon. “And proud to remind you that ALL are welcome at the theater,” he added.
