This weekend's news cycle was surprisingly dominated by Broadway, after VP-elect Mike Pence attended Hamilton on Friday night (Nov. 18) and was booed by his fellow audience members. After sounding off about the situation on the red carpet ahead of the American Music Awards on Sunday night, Broadway vet Idina Menzel shouted out the Hamilton cast and mocked the situation while presenting an award at the AMAs.
Menzel presented an award with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who joked that he was not getting an invite to Donald Trump's presidential inauguration in January. "I know how you feel," Menzel quipped. "Us unsafe, scary theater people wouldn't be invited to the inauguration, either. I love you, Hamilton!"
