    Though, not everyone was down with the Hamilton cast's actions:

    Text - Charles C. W. Cooke @charlescwcooke 3h For the record, Alexander Hamilton was an immigration hawk who endorsed the Alien and Sedition Acts and wanted to deport troublemakers. Charles C. W. Cooke Follow @charlescwcooke That doesn't matter much, but l'm a little bored of seeing the man cast as some sort of trendy rainbow warrior. 7:32 AM -19 Nov 2016 62 163

    Lastly, a generous offer to those folks who'd give up their Hamilton tickets to protest...
