"I wouldn't say it's a protest. I see it more as just a notation. Kind of letting our new president and vice president know how that American people feel and that times are kind of uneasy right now. And, I think it was really important to speak what they had to say because the whole music kind of talks about how our country came to be and our American values and how are country was built on immigrants and people of all different backgrounds. So, I think it's really important that they actually spoke their mind. I think they did so very respectfully too."

"It's just, you know, how people are feeling you know one way or another. We want everybody to be represented and they way the campaign was, it was a feeling that everybody wasn't being represented."

"It was a protest. It was a bit disrespectful. They are going to be leaders of the country. I didn't vote for them. I think they're poor candidates, but there still going to be the leaders. I would not have booed."

"I mean I think everyone has their First Amendment right to free speech. I don't think that anything the cast said was disrespectful by any means, so I think that they have the right to speak up as citizens of the U.S. to voice their concerns about the new administration that's coming up."

"I personally I'll tell you Donald Trump's tweet where he says the theatre should be a safe place, I'll tell you that one of the safest places I've ever been in is inside this theatre. So, I think that his tweets just being really, saying that they were disrespectful was really out of line when there have been so many hate crimes committed after he was elected, and he hasn't tweeted a single thing about that. It just seems that his priorities are a little out of line to me."

"I think that someone needs to take his phone away from him. I think it's not very presidential. I think that he said that the cast was harassing Pence, and I think there are other things that Trump has done that could be categorized as harassment, but I don't think Brandon Victor Dixon making a statement for the cast and crew was harassment."
President-elect Donald Trump demanded an apology from the cast of the Broadway musical "Hamilton" a day after an actor delivered a pointed message about diversity to his running mate, prompting angry responses from liberals and conservatives alike and underscoring yet again the fractious aftermath of the 2016 election.
The bitter back-and-forth came after Vice President-elect Mike Pence caught Friday's performance of the hit show with his nephew and daughter and heard an extraordinary speech after the curtain call from the multiracial and multicultural cast, saying it is concerned about the Trump administration.
