3. SOUNDBITE (English) Brandon Victor Dixon, Actor who gave a speech after the curtain call of "Hamilton":
Reporter: Tell me briefly when you got word that he was going to be coming what you prepared for.
"You know we heard about half hour before the show that, that (US) Vice President-elect Mike Pence was going to be at the show, and so you know everybody kind of thought about what it meant considering our show, and considering the kinds of things, the platform that he and (US President-elect Donald Trump) Trump run on and what we wanted to say if we wanted to say anything, and we really thought this was an important moment to really say something, you know to get in front of an individual with whom we feel we have differences and to make that he hears and that he sees us, and that he recognises the importance of the story told, the importance of the fact that it was told by a diverse representation of Americans - different sizes, shapes, colours, creeds, you know, and to really just have a conversation, because that's what we have to do. The only way that we can find a common ground is if we can speak with one another, if we can emphasise with one another and so it was important that we did this. I am so glad that we had the opportunity, and I am so glad that he stayed and he listened and I truly appreciate him doing that."
Reporter: "Do you think it had any effect?"
Dixon: "I am gonna go ahead and believe that it will."
Reporter: "Why is that?"
Dixon: "Because I like to think positively and I think when I put positive thoughts into the universe they manifest, so it had an effect and I look forward to the progress that this man makes."
Reporter: "What do you make of the crowd's reaction at the show?"
Dixon: "I think the crowd's reaction was natural, you know there were some boos and there were some cheers. We are a diverse America and they represented that."
Reporter: "And what was your reaction when you heard that he was coming to this show? Where you surprised at all that he would choose this over all the possible shows?"
Dixon: "My reaction was 'Thank you to the universe, now you have a wonderful opportunity'."
US Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Friday 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.
Pence ducked out before Dixon finished the unprecedented message.
