U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump demanded an apology from the cast of “Hamilton”, but the show’s star Brandon Victor doesn’t believe that needs to happen.
The demand was in response to a message the “Hamilton” cast delivered to VP-Elect Mike Pence: “The producers, the creatives and the cast, we recognize that ‘Hamilton’ is inherently an American story told by the definition of the American community — we are men and women of different colours, creeds, and orientations — and the resonate nature of the show throughout the world, throughout the global community, demands that we make statements when there are important issues facing us as a community,” Brandon told ‘CBS This Morning’. “We wanted to stand up and spread a message of love, and of unity.”
I was honoured to represent our cast and our show in that way,” he added. “For me, I think the most important thing in respect to all the emotions everyone is feeling after this election is to make sure that people recognize that we are not alone. We are here together.”
