“Interestingly enough, since that night we’ve had a decrease in requests from Republican elected officials,” Eustis said.
As the Daily News recalled: “Shortly after the November election, waves were made when actor Brandon Victor Dixon — who plays Vice President Aaron Burr in the show — addressed Pence at curtain call, urging him and the Trump administration ‘to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.’”
Donald Trump himself tweeted: “The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!”
Asked whether he’d let the First Couple bypass the waiting list to see “Hamilton,” Eustis said:
“Sure. He’s the President of the United States; I’m not going to say no to the president to see our show. Whether he’s ‘my president’ personally isn’t the issue.”
