'Hamilton' Star Responds to Donald Trump's Apology Demand
The Tony-nominated actor delivered a message to Pence on behalf of the cast following Friday night’s performance. The President-elect says the cast “harassed” Pence in a “safe place” and that they were “very rude” to him for doing so.
“conversation is not harassment sir. And I appreciate [Pence] for stopping to listen,” Brandon tweeted in response to Trump.
Brandon also spoke to Broadway.com about having the VP-elect at the performance and when they found out he would be attending.
“When we first got the call that he was coming, there was certainly a question of what we would do,” he said. “These are the opportunities that you die for.”
“I saw him enjoying it with whoever he was with, and I hope he remembers us. I truly believe we had an affect,” Brandon added. “It was a message from the producers the creative and the cast. If you have differences, say something! What better place than on this stage telling this story with these people? I hope he thinks of us every time he has to deal with an issue or talk about a bill or present anything.”
