"It was an amazing production and we loved every minute of it. When Mike Pence walked into the room there was a bit of commotion, but we felt like it was an amazing experience to be there witnessing this historical production in connection with the vice president-elect being there enjoying the show. And whether we agree or don't agree with him and the next administration, we thought it was a perfectly fitting environment to experiencing the American way, we loved it."
(Reporter: "And just describe what happened when he walked in?")
Sagrie Samuelian: "He walked in and there was a lot of applause, but some booing as well, and that was too bad. I didn't feel like it was an appropriate thing at all for anyone to be booing someone who is willing to serve our country."
(Reporter: "Did you see his reaction? Were you able to see him?")
Sagrie Samuelian: "He just was gracious and waved a little bit, and took a seat and tried not to cause much of a distraction."
(Reporter: "And what was your reaction when you heard the boos?")
Sagrie Samuelian: "I was disappointed in the booing. I feel at this point even if people don't agree with him or with Donald Trump that we should unite and be supportive and hope for the best and do our part by voting and being good American citizens."
"When he first entered some people cheered, a lot of people booed I would say. I think people were a little bit caught by surprise that we would show up to a show like this, which is known for being so diverse and so welcoming."
(Reporter: "And what was your reaction? Surprised?")
Rodrigo Riamiraz: "I was definitely surprised. A little bit pleased that I could be there to see that happen myself since it was pretty vocal that people seemed to disapprove of him in general."
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Katie, no surname given, audience:
"We were all at the show tonight and Vice President-Elect Pence was there as well. I think a show, especially like Hamilton, where the message is about immigrants and the difference that they made in our country, it was something that the crowd was really into and definitely let Vice President Pence know."
(Reporter: "And can you describe the booing, the reaction that he got?")
Katie: "So right in the beginning, it was epic. The audience gave Vice President Pence a welcome of booing, very loud booing as it got started. But what really capped it off was at the end when the cast delivered a message and it sounds like Vice President elect Pence was getting ready to leave, and one of the cast members said 'Hold tight, we have a message,' and it was a message about how this is a show about diversity and bringing people together and what this country is all about, and he hopes, and everybody I think in the audience hopes, that is the message that Vice President Pence takes back with him to Washington."
(Reporter: "And what was it like for you to see it?")
Katie: "Emotional. It was super emotional at the end. I think everyone was emotional and really felt proud of our country and hope leaving that show."

"However I am very proud to have been a part of booing Mike Pence."
US Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Friday (18 NOV. 2016) was the latest high-profile person to attend the Broadway hit "Hamilton," but he became the first to get a sharp message from a cast member from the stage.
Actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, the nation's third vice president, gave a speech for his political descendant after the curtain call, telling Pence the multiracial and multicultural cast is worried about the Donald Trump administration.
The vice president-elect was also both cheered and booed when he arrived at the show.
The reaction to the booing from the audience was mixed. Sagrie Samuelian said she felt "disappointed" by the display of disapproval, while others said it made them feel "proud."
