Yup. The audience was a bit rude but shut up when the play started. The cast's statement was written--so they'd put some thought behind it. No bad words, or anything. And Pence was leaving the room at the time--with his SS (Secret Service) escort. So he probably didn't hear most of it.

Hamilton has been a hot ticket for some time now. During its Off-Broadway tryout & especially while the original cast played on Broadway. Public figures of all sorts have managed to attend the play--even Cheney. But Donald Trump, so rich & connected he could command excellent seats, never took the time. I doubt he has sufficient attention span to watch a play.
