The cast of Hamilton calls out VP-Elect Mike Pence in the audience - and it's powerful
It seems like everyone in politics is going to see Hamilton. Even Vice President-Elect Mike Pence. But just before he left the theater, he got a very different kind of encore:
“We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious…” The boldness of the Hamilton company here makes me pretty dang proud to be an American. I think we'll continue to see these kinds of call-outs when the new administration tries to enter more diverse or progressive spaces. And that, my friends, is a very good, and democratic, and kinda prophetic, thing.
