CHICAGO: Drunk Trump Fan Ejected From Hamilton After Screaming “We Won! You Lost! Fuck You!”

Broadway World reports:

Broadway World has learned that a Trump supporter interrupted the Saturday evening performance of Hamilton in Chicago. An audience member seated in the balcony allegedly shouted “We won! You lost! Get over it! F*ck you!” during the number “Dear Theodosia.”

One Twitter user who attended the show alleges that the audience member also shouted profanities and had an altercation with security before being removed from the auditorium. One Facebook user wrote “At the end, the performers were crying… so was I. They didn’t break characters once. They still sang their hearts out.”

An audience member has exclusively confirmed to Broadway World that the initial disturbance began after the audience member was enraged by the line “immigrants, we get the job done.” The majority of the audience cheered that specific line.

Audience members exited the auditorium to retrieve venue staff to remove the disruptive audience member. Our source confirmed that the altercation lasted for at least two numbers and that there was a struggle with security but “he didn’t throw punches.” The audience member also informed us that venue staff later said the audience member had been intoxicated.

Multiple audience members reported the incident on social media but homocon blogger Jim Hoft says they’re all liars.

If you perform a quick online search at Stubhub you find balcony tickets for Hamilton in Chicago are going for over $200 a piece. We are supposed to believe a TRUMP supporter spent that kind of money only to stand up and start screaming at the cast? Sorry. Once again, I am not buying it. With all of the fake hate incidents being reported by the left you have to question these reports by the corrupt media. It is more likely a Chicago bird-dogger was behind the stunt than a Trump supporter.

    Right, Jim, so everyone else who actually witnessed this event is lying about it?

  • another_steve

    Soon we’ll all have to wear hardhats and protective gear to see a performance of that show.

    • Who can afford to see this show…I mean seriously I watched it on PBS and that is good enough for me…

        It was on PBS? When?

          • Ernest Endevor

            That’s about the show. That’s not the show. And also, those prices are from scalpers and not the official box-office. That show is the biggest hit since A Chorus Line which Bernie Jacobs credited with having saved Broadway. Hamilton will generate billions for New York’s economy. They’re not going to allow some little TV version interfere with the profits it will generate over its lifetime.

          • Nevertheless as I stated in my original posting…that is good enough for me…

            I prefer my local theater company (The Seattle Rep) that produces many AWESOME performances…

          • Ernest Endevor

            Including work of mine. I haven’t seen Hamilton either and most likely won’t as I despise and loathe everything to do with rap. However, the right is going to use this as another excuse to yank whatever paltry amount of federal dollars that still go to the arts and I don’t think we should enable them. Given our economy and culture, Broadway is a vital INTERNATIONAL asset for what is best about the US.

          • another_steve

            Lordy lordy… I remember when you could get a decent Broadway matinee seat for $10. I saw Pearl Bailey in “Hello, Dolly!” that way.

            Do you (or anyone else reading here) know what the (non-scalper) Broadway ticket range is for “Hamilton” these days?

          • Ernest Endevor

            Here’s the Ticketmaster site. Appears to be $135 – $200. With a block sold as ‘premium’ tickets. But yes, I remember when B’way tickets were affordable. When there was an audience that attended regularly.

          • another_steve

            Thanks for that info.

            My mother was very into theater. She worked for the New York State Council on the Arts and personally knew ‎Kitty Carlisle Hart when Kitty was head of the Council. We went to Broadway shows regularly and often.

            Somewhere in my basement I have a box of all the Playbills from those years. I need to dig them out, one of these days.

          • Ernest Endevor

            We know that Moss Hart was one of our gay forebears?

          • another_steve

            Oy vey I should have a dollar bill for every great female diva of the day who was married to a gay man.

          • David Walker

            I always admired Elsa Lanchester for marrying Charles Laughton. All Kitty Carlisle meant to me was a panelist on “What’s My Line?” Elsa was in movies, so I could see her talent. “Witness for the Prosecution” was heaven…she, he, Marlene Dietrich, and Tyrone Power (also rumored to be family)…we could sit through movies for however often we wanted Back Then. I sat through it twice and have hardly ever missed it on TV.

          • another_steve

            Of course, as I know you know, David, Kitty Carlisle Hart had an extraordinary history. She was a socialite, a singer, an actress, a fervent spokeswoman for the arts and for arts funding.

            As I recounted in another comment, my mother worked with and knew her. Mom would tell me stories of the things that Kitty would confide in her in the ladies room while they were both standing in front of the mirror, “adjusting” themselves.

            Ah, such things she confided.

            Out of deference to Kitty, I never discuss what my mama told me of those restroom chats with the grande dame. 😉

            I think she’s mostly married straight men, including one seriously sexy and gorgeously intelligent stage manager.

          • Steverino

            Be sure those playbills find a nice home in an archive eventually, Steve. Certainly there must be a Broadway archive, somewhere.

          • David Walker

            I saw most of the major musicals for $5 during their tryouts in Philly. Of course, we were never sure if what we saw would land on Broadway. If I recall, we did see some that never quite made it opening night (“Holly Golightly” with Mary Tyler Moore and Richard Chamberlain) and a few that didn’t even make it out of Philly (titles I forget, but I do remember one in which the overture was piano only.)

            One thing I didn’t know at the time: “Funny Girl” spent an inordinate amount of time in Philly in 1964. I assumed it was that popular. Turns out, it was moved from the Forrest to the Erlanger because it was in no shape to go to NY. Streisand was throwing fits, refusing this and insisting on that until finally there was little income and they had to move it NYC. What did I know? Onstage, she was amazing.

          • another_steve

            “Holly Golightly” with Mary Tyler Moore and Richard Chamberlain

            Lol. Wonderful. 😉 You and I could tell some stories, David. 😉

            I saw so many of the greats on Broadway in the 1960s. So many memories. As a queerling back then, I have fond memories of having seen John Cullum in “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.”

            Such a very very handsome — and talented — man.

          • David Walker

            *sigh* Yeah, there were 4 of us theater fags in college. We’d check the Sunday Inquirer to see what was coming in and then give one guy the money, he’d buy the seats and we’d go see “Cabaret” or “Mame” or “Walking Happy” and movies that never made it out to the sticks, most memorably Joseph Strick’s “Ulysses.”

          • another_steve

            Ah yes… the Fag Theater Society. I don’t even know whether the younguns have college Fag Theater Societies these days.

            Back in the day, we did. Of course.

          • I think the MTM/Richard Chamberlain production opened on Broadway but closed quickly. I could be wrong. I remember reading about it in the book Not Since Carrie which chronicles big budget flop musicals up through the 90s.

            About Funny Girl…what I had heard (not that my info is better than yours) is that the show was a crashing bore until the producers turned into a star vehicle for Streisand. You might have noticed that we don’t see many revivals of it. I think there’s a reason for that. She was a star though and that was the show that established her as more than a night club singer.

          • David Walker

            No question it was her show, which I’m sure is why I thought it was like a movie, being “held over by popular demand.” I loved “Not Since Carrie.” You make me think I’d enjoy reading it again. As for “Holly,” I know that it did arrive in New York, but I didn’t think it made it to opening night.

          • You are probably right.

            I got a comp for a Broadway show called Chronicle of a Death Foretold. it was kind of a musical? It was just awful. it’s the only show I’ve ever seen where people got up and walked out. I couldn’t blame them but as a performer it was fascinating to watch and try to figure out what exactly had gone so wrong. The cast was great and working overtime to make a piece of shit work. It didn’t. I think it was in previews. I also think it got nominated for a tony but only to fill out a category. This was the 90s when there were years when they had trouble having enough shows to make a best new musical category. Sunset Boulevard was given a special award because it was the only new musical to open that year.

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            Depends on seats:
            Orchestra: range is about $1,500 to $441.
            Cheapest: $130.

            or try the lottery. A few tickets only given away each day for $20.

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            I can see your contention but it would be really hard to pull funding over Hamilton, especially when Pence notes how good it is, and how it has involved some major history lessons, and gotten lots of attention in the WH. Granted, that was of course under Obama. They’ll go after museum exhibits first, less popular and well known, a la Hide/Seek– which saw their admission sky rocket after Congress freaks out about it.

          • Ernest Endevor

            Of course they can’t pull funding for Hamilton, it’s a commercial production, but they’ll certainly try to pull what little funding exists for regional theatres, and for development, and education. To say nothing of PBS, orchestras and, as you note, museums. I’m expecting an all-out assault with Trump in the White House because he’s the most ignorant and philistine president that I can think of off-hand.

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            I just think that they will not use Hamilton to that extent. I never thought that they would try to shut it down, it’s just hard to argue with a musical that highlights more American colonial history than most people ever know. It’s made knowing colonial history oddly cool again and extremely popular– and even conservative oddly think that the musical is about conservative ideology (how in the hell they get that from it, I don’t know.) Making it a lightning rod for discussion of funding will not, I believe, have that much of an effect. They’ll use something else I would posit.

          • Piet

            My fear exactly. I can see the NEA getting cut completely out of the next budget, and the DC museums losing the majority of their funding. The only thing that will save most of them is their endowments.

          • SoCalGal20

            It’s not all rap. Some of the songs are more conventional Broadway. There are many musical styles represented. You should give the sountrack a chance, at least, before dismissing it out-of-hand. It’s very good. Also, when rap is done well it’s poetry with flow and rhythm.

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            I’m still trying to figure out if most of it even is rap.
            Example: Anything from King George is clearly not. A lot from the Schuyler sisters is not. Of course, the ballads from Hamilton and Eliza, and even Phillip’s and at times Burr, are not. The closing song is not. The cabinet meetings are rap inter-spliced with dialogue. The instrumentals and background samples rap *at times* but there’s also a significant portion that is strings, as in cello and violin. There is some sampling of rap in the lyrics, but there is also sampling of Shakespeare– in fact, three plays in one song if memory serves correctly.
            It’s a pretty eclectic score, which may be the point.

          • That’s what’s so great. We are living in post modern times. Everything is usable. Whatever tells the story.

          • SoCalGal20

            It’s not. My Shot and Alexander Hamilton are rapped but Alexander Hamilton is only partially rapped. It’s such a great song. Gives me goosebumps every time. (Btw, this video includes President Obama’s intro to the performance)

            https://youtu.be/ZPrAKuOBWzw

            And My Shot is rapped but it’s got a jazz undertone to it.

            https://youtu.be/PEHKBckBcr4

            I personally think the Hamilton soundtrack is brilliant and eclectic.

            I see a lot of trashing of rap and hip hop on here but I find them extremely vibrant and powerful art forms. It’s not all about bitches and hos and money.

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            …..And those videos include Daveed Diggs, which inherently make them oh! so much better.

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            Agreed. And add to it the fact that the music form is based on a recognition of and reconsideration of dominant paradigms. Fitting for the musical.
            Side note; the line “Me, I died for him” is said by the (drop dead amazingly gorgeous) actor who plays both Laurens and Phillip Hamilton. The double entendres in this show are rampant and a great cerebral puzzle. Example: Burr’s “Lying in wait” line in “Wait for it” is just good writing.

          • SoCalGal20

            That’s Anthony Ramos who plays Laurens and Philip Hamilton. Incidentally, tonight was his final performance in Hamilton.

            I’m sure you’re right. I’m only going on snips that I’ve seen. I do think the staging looks terrific as do the designs. I can never get past the fever-rhymes of rap. They make me crazy. My problem.

          • I’m no rap fan, but the scenes I’ve seen from Hamilton are brilliant. Also, the arts are a huge draw for nyc and other major cities. The #1 tourist attracting in the city is the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Conventions and other meetings are held there because you can also go see some shows while you are there. Otherwise why spend twice as much for hotels and meeting spaces. Some politicians get that. At least the NYC ones do. Nationally not so much. Although seeing the huge drop in international college applications already I also look to see a huge drop in international tourism as well.

          • SoCalGal20

            The Hamilton doc on PBS is worth seeing, I think. It includes some of the original cast performances but it’s a mix of a behind-the-scenes making of the musical and a little bit of a history doc about Hamilton and Burr.

          • JCF

            What he said: “a small documentary on PBS”

            I hope either the show itself will be on PBS before TOO long, or else

            1) they film the stage production to show in movie theaters, or

            2) an actual movie musical

          • Ernest Endevor

            They’ll make a movie musical. This property is worth billions and will not be allowed to escape into the wilds of PBS.

          • Ernest Endevor

            I know. My only point is that it’s important to bear in mind that these are not the official price of seats and the the scalpers rob the creators of the show, as well as its producers and cast members, just as they do the public.

          • Which is why in many jurisdictions scalping is illegal.

        Oh wait…?!?

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        It is expensive; Hamilton orchestra in NYC can be around $1,400. Those are scalper prices for those seats. Most of orchestra is around $881, some of it is $477. Having noted, “up there” seats are in the $130 range, which is less than some seats in other theaters. I saw Hedwig and that was $350. Damned good seats but again, not cheap.

      • Those are scalped tickets. You just have to go online the day the next block goes on sale to buy. Unless NYC laws have changed since my box office days, scalping is illegal in nyc so I’d be wary dealing with someone already doing something illegal. Who knows if the tickets are real and not fakes.

        The indie bookstores are pretty much gone, so visit your local library while you still can.

        • Michael Abbett

          I worked for a large metro library system for over 16 years. The Republicans were always trying to censor the collection and privatize and outsource their services, calling libraries irrelevant in the age of Google. Not to mention, of course, keeping budgets low enough so wages never rose.

          Patronize libraries as much as you can, if only to drive up door count and circulation numbers, and that includes online downloads of e-books and music. This administration will be out for any public services they can get rid of to shift the tax money to the corporations.

          • I LOVE MY LOCAL LIBRARY. Between it and my university library I can get pretty much anything I want and there’s interlibrary loan for the rest. Our DVD collection is great. I’ve been working my way through a backlog of classic films that had been in my netflix queue for years. It’s not quite free. I pay taxes, but it is much used. Oh, and when I go during the day I see a lot of homeschoolers making good use of the library. So the idea that conservatives aren’t using public libraries is false.

          • Michael Abbett

            Oh, the conservative constituents use and depend on the services, but a lot of their leaders would kill the public funding if they could get their way. Think Obamacare. Voting against their own best interests, as usual.

          • The ACA works pretty well in states that set up a state exchange. For the rest of us it’s not really all that great. I get a subsidy and even with that my insurance is almost as much as my rent. So between the two that’s over half my income. Instead of blaming the governor (as I do) they blame the prices on Obama. It’s fucked up but it’s not going to change and it didn’t help that in 2010 Democrats ran away from Obamacare instead of defending it. Oh and they lost anyway. I would like for Dems to grow a spine during my lifetime.

          • obama can have some blame. he was one of the primary forces that shut out the single payer people from Day One of the ACA debacle. insurance companies were welcomed and gave plenty of input as the bill was shaped, and it is essentially the same as one written years before by republicans, as an alternative to what old HRC wanted to bring but could not.

            people say the ACA was “the best he could do,” but if you were part of the process, as several people i worked with at the time were, you cannot deny that not only did Obama not even try for single payer, he actively worked against it. my old blog was thick with coverage, and the details of the dem sausage making are very ugly.

          • I remember the process well. There was no way to get single payer through Congress. None. You are delusional if you think that was a possibility. ACA just barely got passed as it was and that was watered down with lots of compromises. That’s what it takes to get controversial bills enacted. If you don’t realize then maybe you’re happy with just letting people die from pre-existing conditions while we wait for single payer which won’t happen in my lifetime.

          • Carl

            As I recall, we came very close to lowering Medicare enrollment to 55 before Joe Lieberman fucked us. Obama never had a filibuster proof progressive majority in the senate. Never.

            He only had a Democratic filibuster-proof majority from June ’09 (when Sen Al Franken was FINALLY seated!) until January ’10 (when that douchebag Scott Brown filled Kennedy’s seat). But you’re right: w/ DINOs like Lieberman, there was never a progressive majority.

          • Dazzer

            Where I live in London there is a magnificent local library that gets a lot of local use. However, there are also book swap schemes.

            At the railway station, people who have finished reading a book on a journey leave it in the special (and large) baskets and pick out another book to read. It’s mostly novels, but there are is a wide variety and people faithfully operate it on an honour system.

            We’ve also got Britain’s smallest library which is an old red telephone box. It was going to be decommissioned, but local people saved it by turning it into a volunteer library. It works much the same way as the railway station system – except it’s better organised because the community keeps it clean and puts plastic covers on the books.

      I read an article in some newspaper about a West Virginia coal county which voted 75% for Trump over Clinton because of their hatred of Clinton and they think Trump will bring back coal. I think that county is in for a sad disappointment re: Trump. Sure in the short term they might get screwed again and get a few coal jobs, yet in the long term those jobs aren’t coming back because of Trump.

      One thing I have noticed for quite some time now, is conservatives base their politics not so much on what they are for, but who they are against.

    The Trump administration, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to the rest of the world for their terrible behavior. The Theater must always be a safe and special place. The Trump supporter was very rude last night to a very good cast. Apologize!

    • cleos_mom

      I seem to recall (not directly) that the theatre was a special but not very safe place for at least one POTUS. Would Il Douche dare to attend a performance there, maybe “Ragtime” (March 2017)?

      http://www.fords.org/

      • David Walker

        Don’t forget that our present First Family attended a performance of “Hamilton” and didn’t get booed, and Michelle invited the cast to perform at the White House to entertain a group of young people (I forget the exact program being held there), which President Obama also attended. It’s not just the political differences but the cultural differences between the two families that will be difficult to adjust to. And to say that I fear for arts’ funding is to put it mildly.

        • Miranda had already performed at the White House. When he told the Obamas he was working on a rap musical about the founding fathers they nodded politely. Obama admitted later that he thought it was a crazy idea. And now it’s the hottest show in at least 20 years.

          Yes, I’m worried about arts funding, but remember that a lot of GOP donors are also on the boards of arts organizations. The largest donor to Houston Symphony is David Dewhurst (former Texas Lt Gov and who lost in the 2012 primary to Ted Cruz). That’s true of lots of arts organizations. That’s who saved the NEA in the 90s. And they will again.

          • Lucy Montrose

            Nice that Dewhurst is a big arts patron… but usually there’s a string attached. Anybody know any members of the Houston Symphony? What is working there like? Do conservatives and Christians have an easier time getting in the orchestra compared to liberals and nonbelievers?

          • I worked there for a year. A lot of the staff was gay and very out. Orchestra musicians audition behind a screen so they are hired without those making the decision knowing their age, race, sex or anything else other than how they play. That is standard for instrumentalists. So no, there is no hiring agenda imposed by the Dewhursts. In fact the local gay men’s chorus sang with them on a pops concert a few years back.

          • What an amazing concept; actually hiring based on abilities, and doing so in such a way that everyone feels they were treated fairly.

          • I suspect that the original idea was to prevent favoritism, and that the discrimination issue came up much later, but it does remove some of the bias. That said, I suspect that there are people who can recognize their colleagues’ playing. Even so, it’s a much more level playing field than exists in most professions (said the singer).

          • barryearle

            The practice of blind auditions started in the 1970s and 80s to fight gender bias. Until that time, symphony orchestras were made up of male musicians with, maybe, a female musician here and there. If you look at films of orchestras before that time one is hard pressed to find a woman among all those tuxedos.

          • Indeed. and usually the lone female was a harpist. It made news when the Vienna Philharmonic finally admitted a woman in 1997. I think that was the last all-male orchestra. (And the 1997 news wasn’t for a permanent hire, just a musician playing one gig.)

    Is it wrong that I’m hoping, or at the very least fantasizing, that the Electoral College surprises everyone on Dec. 19th and announces that they have elected Hillary? Oh the gnashing of teeth, what few they have, the wails of sorrow, the screeching and clutching of pearls…..what music it would make to ears of sane among us.

    Of course, it’s all just wishing fantasy, but you have to admit, their reactions would be one for the history books. That and I can’t help but think Trump would actually breathe a sigh of relief.

It was maddening enough when leftists supported the Soviet Union during the Cold War but, after all, the jackals on the right were up to some very foul business. And the propaganda from both sides was often impenetrable.

        But the truth about the Soviet Union and Putin’s Russia is easy to access. I can’t imagine what planet of delusion that woman is living on to ignore such fundamental reality.

    For the record, here are the lyrics to Dear Theodosia. Ironically, the song highlights the common values shared by bitter rivals, Hamilton and Burr.

    [BURR]
    Dear Theodosia, what to say to you?
    You have my eyes. You have your mother’s name
    When you came into the world, you cried and it broke my heart
    I’m dedicating every day to you

    Domestic life was never quite my style
    When you smile, you knock me out, I fall apart
    And I thought I was so smart
    You will come of age with our young nation
    We’ll bleed and fight for you, we’ll make it right for you
    If we lay a strong enough foundation
    We’ll pass it on to you, we’ll give the world to you

    And you’ll blow us all away…
    Someday, someday
    Yeah, you’ll blow us all away
    Someday, someday

    [HAMILTON]
    Oh Philip, when you smile I am undone
    My son
    Look at my son. Pride is not the word I’m looking for
    There is so much more inside me now
    Oh Philip, you outshine the morning sun

    My son
    When you smile, I fall apart
    And I thought I was so smart

    My father wasn’t around

    [BURR]
    My father wasn’t around

    [HAMILTON]
    I swear that
    I’ll be around for you.

    [BURR]
    I’ll be around for you.

    [HAMILTON]
    I’ll do whatever it takes

    [BURR]
    I’ll make a million mistakes

    [BURR/HAMILTON]
    I’ll make the world safe and sound for you…
    …will come of age with our young nation

    We’ll bleed and fight for you, we’ll make it right for you
    If we lay a strong enough foundation
    We’ll pass it on to you, we’ll give the world to you

    And you’ll blow us all away…

    Yeah, you’ll blow us all away

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      One of the relatively larger misconceptions about the musical is that the entirety is done in rap. Or that it’s just about Hamilton’s life. Both ideas are incorrect. The lyrics that you included showcase that, and a lot of history is woven throughout the lyrics about the timing of the Revolution and election of 1800 (quick: who was Samuel Seabury and why do we give a shit?). Even more, a good deal of it really deals with legacy and the importance of the written word.

      And if the ballad of “It’s Quiet Uptown” doesn’t make you at least somewhat emotional, you have blood of acid.

(She tells the joke better and it doesn’t come off as transphobic like the way I tried to describe it. Anyway, she’s a goddess.)

      These people are, by and large, fairly well-off. They’re just bullies. They are the upper-middle-class managers who exploit the hell out of their poorer cousins in the red states, who vote to make sure that they’ll be scraping off the cream from any corporate or political power move that bleeds their communities dry.

      They’re extremely privileged, they’ve always been privileged, and they want to make sure that if they can’t maintain their privileged lifestyles, they will burn it all to the ground. So that no one can have what they have.

      And they keep blaring this disinformation about the noble, righteous suffering of the poor, exploited working-class victims who have been moved to rage because libruls say mean things about them. Nazi bitches, please!

    How did you “fight back” exactly, other than ruining your own experience? And if you have a thematic problem with a piece of art, why the fuck did you go to it in the first place?

    • 604brian

      Tiger, you are assuming that these troglodytes are capable of logic, and sometimes even common sense.

    • David Walker

      As soundguy, I sat at the back of the orchestra section to mix shows and it never ceased to amaze and disgust me that people would walk out mid-act. I realize that draws attention to themselves, but why are they there in the first place? Especially at the community theater, the shows are known commodities, you can look them up. One time I saw “Chicago” in Hershey and during Mama’s song, they stood up and, since there were not on the aisle, made others get up so they could leave all indignant and huffy.

      • Dazzer

        The only time I walked out with friends, we decided to do it at the intermission. We were at a particularly turgid version of Macbeth at the National Theatre and there was still another two hours of the play to go.

        We heard some American college students pleading at the box office for tickets – and they said they would be prepared to stand at the back. So we gave them our tickets for free and then went off to get drunk.

        Problem solved, everyone was happy and the seats remained filled.

        Of course the American students probably never read or watched any Shakespeare after that awful production – but that’s their problem.

        • paganguy

          I’ve always felt lucky that I was able to see the production with Glenda Jackson and Christopher Plummer. Not everyone cared for it, but I’ve always loved both of them as actors.

          • Dazzer

            Glenda Jackson has gone back to acting at the age of 83. She’s currently starring as King Lear. All the reviews say she’s terrific, but, sadly, I can’t get tickets to see it – and believe me, I’ve tried every trick, ruse and contact to get to see her.

      • tcinsf

        I’ve left at intermission when I really didn’t like the play or the performance was truly dreadful. I get subscriptions so there’s always a couple of shows that I wouldn’t have bought a ticket to were it not for the subscription. Sometimes, I see something amazing that I wouldn’t have (perfect example was Pippin … I have hated “Place in the Sun”since the seventies and was really cringing … but I loved the show.) Generally there is one play or musical per season that I get 1/2 way through and think “truly, I’d rather watch Bravo on the couch with the dog…”
        But to leave in the middle of the show is unacceptable unless there is really REALLY a good reason.

        • Oscarlating Wildely

          I recall one show that I left about five minutes in.

          Billing: A midnight reflection with spoken word and music about humanity.

          Actual: Humanism is overrated and the Rosenbergs deserved to fry and, bad Jews that they were, are probably rotting or burning somewhere.

          And I’d walk out after that shit again in a heartbeat.

  • jimbo65

    The fake outrage these Trumpanzees spout should not be allowed to become the new normal. They seem to think free speech is one sided in their favor. They want to label dissent against their Fuhrer as being unamerican, unpc. To that I say, screw you! I may have to live in this fucked up new America. But doesn’t mean I have to fall in line with rubes and haters.

    • rextrek1

    • Dazzer

      I have the same problem with the Brexiteers in the UK. One has to constantly explain to them that although they won 52 per cent of the vote on 23rd of June, it didn’t mean that I had to give up my principles and stop fighting for the country I believe in.

      These people seem to think that democracy is a one-way street and they get t call all the ground rules.

      They don’t.

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        True, but here Trump didn’t even get that many votes anyway. In fact, he didn’t even get majority.

  • Ninja0980

  • Michael Hampton

    It reminds me of how 5 Second City performers quit the company recently. They said that audience members think they are at a Trump rally and shout racist things at the stage during the show. It’s like everyone thinks that they can now scream obscenities anywhere and at any time.

  • Sometimes audience disruptions are fun. One of my most treasured memories in the theater was during a performance of Angels in America when an old woman started cursing out Roy Cohn. Not the actor (F. Murray Abraham) but the character. At first I wasn’t sure if it was part of the show. I had only lived in nyc for a week and it was the best welcome present I could have received.

    Other intrusions are not so welcome like cell phones going off. I applaud performers like Patti LuPone and Brian Dennehy who go off on such rude people. (At least put your phone on silent but if you aren’t a doctor on call or something similar just turn your bloody phone off for two hours!

    But this was rude. Look for more of this to come. The anger of 2016 is not going to magically disappear in 2017. Now will we get a Rite of Spring (1913) moment? Now that would be legen….wait for it…dary!

    • LaChatSayWha

      Bless you (atheistically, of course)! I was just thinking about what our Rite of Spring moment might be. I don’t want to miss it if Nijinsky’s ghost decides to come back.

    We are going to have a race war, aren’t we?

    • canoebum

      The race war never ended. What you are really asking is, the race war will continue to get worse, won’t it? When you have armed authorities openly murdering citizens in the streets, in their homes, and no justice is to be found, how can you call that anything other than a war?

    • tcinsf

      No. We are not having a “race war.” That suggests that all whites would be pitted against all people of color. It’s a dog whistle played by right wing people to justify their paranoia. In the even there’s a civil war, which I really don’t think will happen (but then I didn’t think the country would be stupid enough to elect trump … so what do I know) it will NOT be along race lines. It will be on class lines and political/philosophical lines

  • Cuberly

    This may sound paranoid, but if we’ve learned anything during this election, the alt-right is going to pounce on this. Concerned for the cast members. Lord knows what unhinged elements are going to unleash on them.

    Actually the alt-right has already run with hating on the show. Case in point, Mediaite. Almost every post about the “controversy” is jam packed with hater trolls. I made one post sticking up for the message the cast member was striving for. And, surprise, I got nailed with the same ole same ole bs. “They’re all just whiny libs, shut-up and sing, it was an attack on Pence, yada yada….”

    I guess this falls under Milo’s ever evolving excuses for what he does. But we know what it is. It just boils down to stoking rage

    And what’s to say he even bought the ticket himself?

  • sad. i bet he totally was into the fact that he got those oh so hard to get tickets, and would’ve been bragging on having gotten them, before the play came to represent all things anti-drumpf. now he’ll be bragging about being thrown out. enjoy your 15 seconds, dood. as far as that goes, you shot your karmic wad on the lamest possible opportunity to be in the spotlight. i’ve seen better protest moments at children’s theatre.

  • Ken Berry

    I worked (admittedly years ago) in opera marketing. At a certain level, attending a premium-priced theatrical event is more an act of conspicuous consumption than a treasured experience, undertaken with the hope of feeding one’s soul. The ticket either was purchased months ago, or as a last minute, fuck-you I GOT MONEY. Either way, I find it very plausible.

    From a Washington Post story on the “Pence booing incident”:

    “Trump would continue to tweet about the “Hamilton” into the next day, insisting at 6:22 a.m. Sunday that the cast and producers of the show, “which I hear is highly overrated,” should apologize to Pence.”

    Do you, dear reader, believe that this thug will be the next President of the United States?

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/arts-and-entertainment/wp/2016/11/20/pence-says-he-wasnt-offended-by-hamilton-as-trump-continues-to-demand-an-apology/

  • Mihangel apYrs

    ‘ . . . While Mr Trump demanded an apology from the cast and called the show
    “overrated”, Mr Pence told Fox News that he, his daughter and cousins
    “really enjoyed the show”.

    “Hamilton is just an incredible production, incredibly talented people and it was a real joy to be there,” he said.

    He acknowledged that he heard “a few boos” and “some cheers”. “I nudged my kids and reminded them that’s what freedom sounds like,” he said.’

    And this guy was ejected why? No freedom for him

    • Mikey

      he was ejected for causing a disturbance. It wasn’t a question of freedom of speech.
      wow, dense much?

      • Mihangel apYrs

        and sraight in to the attack. One side booing – free speech, the opposition booing – disturbing the peace. Sometimes one has to disrupt to make a point (even if I disagree with his sentiments). For example, when Peter Tatchell stood up in a church service given by the Archbishop of Canterbury . . .

        • Mikey

          Reading comprehension is a prerequisite of intelligent discourse.
          Those few who booed Pence did not do so DURING the show.
          The man who was ejected DID cause his commotion during a musical number.

          Those who booed Pence did so briefly and only vocally.
          The man who caused a commotion became physical and had to be removed for the safety of others.

          So take your misinterpretation of “freedom of speech” and shove it. You obviously don’t have clue no.1

          • Mihangel apYrs

            and yet you fail to answer the thrust of my argument, perhaps it is easier to hide from it and squeal.

          • Mikey

            that’s just it: you don’t HAVE an argument.

            your entire point is based upon gross misinformation and a pure misunderstanding of the meaning of freedom of speech.

            why should anyone bother to respond to you then?
            you’re not open to response.
            I’ve given you a perfectly reasonable response:
            the booing in the hall is NOT comparable to the loud-mouthed and physically abusive protester. they did not occur in the same context at all.

            You sound like those who complain their free speech is being stifled when they call for the death of LGBT people, and are responded to.
            A) “Gays are sick! gays should die! gays should be in jail! deport all gays!”
            B) “Stop lying about gays”
            A) ” AHHH! You’re trampling my rights! It’s anti-Christian discrimination!”

          • Mihangel apYrs

            So you think that direct action is not acceptable if it disturbs people? And free speech should be limited to what is polite? Because that is the thrust of your remark.

            The man’s physicality is the only caveat – violence is not acceptable – though it appears he only resisted ejection. Were the booers ejected?

  • Phaius
