Mike Pense made a mistake. He stopped last weekend when the cast asked him, so they could make a statement. The election is over. Pense no longer has to be overly polite. His response should have been, “You’re entitled to your opinions and may express them. Each of you can write me letters. Your opinions are no more significant than that man’s (Pense points to man 50 feet away) or this woman’s here (he points ten feet away). It was a wonderful performance. Good night. God Bless you. God Bless America!”
The New York City cast of Hamilton does not believe that: We on the stage in New York City in the biggest, most successful musician of this century. Note, if the cast had hired the theater for ten minutes to make their announcement, nobody would have come. These people are actors!
