‘Hamilton’ Makes $3.3 Million In A Week Despite Boycott Attempt From Trump Supports

Hamilton came under a fair share of controversy after Vice President-elect Mike Pence was in attendance on Nov. 19 and was met with boos from the audience and a plea for equality form the cast.

Their efforts may have backfired as the musical broke records by making $3.3 million over the next week after only putting on eight performances.
