At the end of the show, one of the actors asked Pence not to leave the theater before he could read a statement from the cast.
"Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us at 'Hamilton: An American Musical,'" Brandon Victor Dixon said. "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."
