Brandon Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr in the Broadway smash hit musical "Hamilton," drew national attention after reading a speech to Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Friday, expressing the cast's anxiety over the Trump administration after the show.
Now, Dixon said there's "nothing to apologize for," despite President-elect Donald Trump demanding an apology.
Instead, he said Trump should see the show that he called "highly overrated."
Here's Dixon on "CBS This Morning."
That's certainly not the first time, nor will it be the last, that somebody went into the theater and began to... stand up and [interrupt] a show.
The speech to Pence sparked heated reactions. A member of the audience at a Chicago show yelled "We won. You lost. Get over it. F--k you," in response to the line "Immigrants, we get the job done," The Washington Post reported. But Dixon wasn't concerned.
Here's Dixon's speech in its entirety.
Pence said he was "not offended" by the speech and called the musical "incredible."
Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing.This should not happen!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2016
Trump has not backed down from his harsher stance.
