Commonplace Book Entry 9: Hamilton Cast to Pence

This is the video from the performance of Hamilton that VP-elect Mike Pence attended. At the end of the show the cast shared their fears with the man that plays a big role in our future. The musical was cast with people of all races and ethnicities in an attempt to bring diversity to Broadway. I think that this was the perfect opportunity for people to directly express their concerns. Some may disagree, however this platform allows people all over to hear the message. They took a stand on many issues in their speech and hopefully Pence was receptive. Trump later put out a Tweet demanding an apology, however he was wrong. The cast does not owe Pence a single thing as they were only expressing genuinely feelings in a polite and respectful manner.
