After Vice President-Elect Mike Pence was met with boos from the audience and a curtain speech from the Broadway cast of Hamilton following the November 18 performance urging him to “uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us,” President-Elect Donald J. Trump and his supporters spent November 19 responding.

Trump himself tweeted twice following the incident demanding an apology for Pence’s “harassment” at the theatre. Trump took to Twitter again at 7:22 AM November 20, tweeting that the production is “highly overrated” and that the cast and producers should apologize for their terrible behavior. See the new tweet below.

It should be noted that Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, saw the musical in March and tweeted that it “surpassed” her high expectations.

Trump supporters are also demanding an apology. At the November 19 performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit musical in Chicago, a Trump supporter interrupted the show, yelling at the actors onstage before being escorted out. See tweets from audience members below.

Playbill.com has reached out to representatives for both the Chicago and Broadway productions of Hamilton, and will continue to update as more information becomes available.
