Lea Michele, Brandon Micheal Hall, and the cast of The Mayor speak onstage during the Disney/ABC Television Group portion of the 2017 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on August 6, 2017 in Beverly Hills, Calif.

In attendance at the event were stars Yvette Nicole Brown, Bernard David Jones, Marcel Spears, as well as executive producers Daveed Diggs, Jamie Tarses, James Griffiths, and writer/executive producer Jeremy Bronson.

“I knew Daveed was part of all sorts of community groups and these small collectives doing music together,” Jeremy said during the panel about inspirations for the show. “And then when I read about Chance also starting out doing his poetry in the multi-purpose room of his high school, I thought it was very, very interesting.”

Hamilton's Daveeds Diggs Says Pence 'Got Off Easy'

Daveed Diggs, one of the original and Tony-winning stars of Broadway’s Hamilton, has commented on Mike Pence‘s visit to the show and says the VP-elect “got off easy” with the way he was treated.

The 34-year-old actor, who originated the role of Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson and currently stars on ABC’s Black-ish, compared the visit to other politicians’ visits to the theater.

Hillary [Clinton] was boo’d at @HamiltonMusical during primaries, Lincoln was killed at the theater, Pence was asked to be fair. I say he got off easy,” Daveed said. He is no longer performing in the show and was not at the theater at the time of the incident.

Pence was in the audience for the performance on Friday (November 18) and the cast delivered a respectful message to him after the show, asking him to represent everyone’s interests during his term as Vice President of the United States.

Make sure to read what celebs had to say about Donald Trump‘s demand for the cast of Hamilton to apologize to Pence.

Ben Affleck & Matt Damon Reprise 'Good Will Hunting' Roles in John Krasinski's Live Read!

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon sandwich in their pal John Krasinski for a photo at the live-read event of Good Will Hunting on Friday (October 7) at the NYU Skirball Center in New York City.

John directed the one-night-only event, which featured a surprise cast that wasn’t announced until the actors appeared on stage. Sadly, the event was not recorded so only the live audience was able to experience it.

Ben and Matt reprised their roles from the Oscar-winning movie and they were joined by John‘s wife Emily Blunt as Skylar, Margo Martindale as Sean Maguire, Daveed Diggs as Morgan, Tom McCarthy as Professor Lambeau, Keegan Michael-Key as Billy, Dave Shalansky as Tom, and Harvey Weinstein as the psychologist.

This definitely was a once in a lifetime event to be at!
