Fact or Crap Wednesday 1010

Post by Flasher » Wed Oct 10, 2018 12:08 pm

I saved money for over 2 years to be able to purchase tickets to "Hamilton" only to end up tearing them in half and not going.

Fact or Crap.

Well, Cherry Friends, this statement is indeed . . .

Fact!

I had saved money for so long, had finally managed to get tickets, and then the 2016 Presidential Election happened.  Now, it was because of the election that the key player in "Hamilton" decided to use the stage (during one of his New York performances) as a platform to vent about his feelings toward the candidate(s).  When I saw this in the news coverage, I flipped my lid.  I'm paying hundreds of dollars to see a story told on Broadway.  I did not pay hundreds of dollars to hear your political views and opinions.  That crosses a line.  So, I tore up my tickets and wrote a letter to the production company explaining why those seats would be empty, and how it was unfair to force me to listen to an actor's personal opinion.  The company responded with cookie cutter "we're sorry that you felt disrespected", "Actors are sometimes passionate . . ." "blah, blah, blah". 

Anyway, if I'm paying to see the story of Hamilton, then that's what I want to see and hear.  Keep your opinions to yourself if it's my money at play.  You want to put on the show for free and spew, or stand on the street corner and spew, or even go on broadcast television and spew, go right ahead and feel free.  That's perfectly fine.  Don't charge me an arm and a leg to hear what you have to say about the current state of politics.

Rant over.

Good for you! This is outrageously unfortunate, but I agree with you. A paying audience should never be subjected to an actor's personal opinions - that is not part of his job description. Actors are paid to follow the script.

Laura, I respect you so much for your stand on this. I totally agree with you. Sorry are out the money but I admire you take you stand.

WOW!!! I totally agree and support what you said and did. I'm just so sorry it cost you hundreds of dollars, but you gotta do what's right for you. I would also not accept what the production people told you. That's so not right. Those actors are getting paid to perform not go off on some rant session.

Laura, I kind of thought this would be right. Good for you. I too am sick of listening to political views. If I had those tickets I would do the same!
I am so sorry you are out a lot of money!
I agree with your post, completely.

oh no, Laura! I didn't hear that had happened, but would not want to go for that reason either.  I don't watch any of the big award shows anymore because most of the actors have to put in their 2 cents worth about politics.
