    I do think that when you pay thousands of dollars to see a play (my daughter’s ticket for Hamilton cost $3000!) it shouldn’t be interrupted by temper tantrums about an election. It’s childish to me.

      But it wasn’t an interruption or a temper tantrum but a speech at the curtain call. And it was the audience who racked up the tension by vocalising their feelings about Pence. Rightly or wrongly, I suspect it was inevitable and we’ll see more of it in all manner of circumstances, not just theatres, in the months to come.

        I’m a political junkie so I get the passion, but I also grew up in the NYC area and went to school in the city (in the arts program at NYU). Donald Trump was celebrated by most people I knew as a brash and generous NY character. I think the media has done a great job fanning the flames on this one. I wouldn’t mind if the people who were against Trump’s policies or intemperate comments also equally vented against Hillary’s insane policies in Libya, her abusive treatment of women and her obvious corruption and possible ties to a pedophile ring (see wikileaks). her degree of hubris and dishonest boggles the mind but because she’s a woman she somehow gets a pass?

        The hypocrisy is epic. I still think a political speech at curtain call with the VP’s children in attendance is an interruption of a entertainment event that speaks to a lack of manners.

        Throughout the election the press kept insisting Trump supporters would behave badly after the election if he lost. We now see the opposite thing happening so there’s definitely a lack of moral high ground.

          I would say from what I’ve seen and heard that the protestations against both candidates, before and after the election, have been on a par. Neither have much to recommend them. Curtain speeches have long been used to make points, whether related to theatre or not and if an actor in any production was to have done this, Hamilton seems appropriate. Quite frankly, there isn’t that much to choose between Trump and Clinton and I’ve no idea what I would have done had I been a voting American but on balance, I’d pick Clinton as the lesser of two evils, however charming Trump might have seemed in New York. People are behaving badly and worse on both sides of the argument so no one has the moral high ground. This instance, to me, does not compare in the slightest to the nasty protests on either side. And what do we believe when so much is being propagandised and obfuscated? This article I read yesterday has much I agree with – https://medium.com/@timoreilly/the-huffington-post-has-a-fake-news-problem-f68d8e262cec#.8a6amf4jp. (Eyes are so bad that I can’t even see my Grammarly corrections so forgive any errors! At the very least I’ve repeated myself!)

            I think a curtain call speech lamenting the loss of an election done by actor who apparently didn’t vote seems silly, but totally fine–until they decide to single out an audience member attending with his daughter and nephew.

            I’m imaging Julian Assange being quite surprised that the alleged pedophilia of Hillary’s campaign manager and others in her circle exposed on wikileaks hasn’t received any press. Child trafficking “trumps” other issues for me.

            I guess we shall see what happens, but I wish for public and private debate to be more civilized (just a wish). Glad you and I can agree to disagree about theater manners. 🙂
