Actor Brandon Victor Dixon of the Broadway smash Hamilton visited “CBS This Morning” to address President-Elect Donald Trump’s demand that the production apologize to his vice president-elect, Mike Pence.
As previously reported, Pence attended Friday’s show at the Richard Rodgers Theatre and was leaving during the curtain call when Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, addressed him directly.
“We welcome you, and we truly thank you for joining us here at Hamilton: An American Musical — we really do,” Dixon said from the stage. “We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.”
