Hillary's in the House; Clinton Visits Broadway's 'Dear Evan Hansen'

Thursday Nov 16, 2017

These days Hillary Clinton "will be found" on Broadway.

On Wednesday night at Broadway musical blockbuster "Dear Evan Hansen," the applause started before the curtain. Hillary Clinton was in the house to check out the musical before Tony Award-winner Ben Platt takes his final bow in the role on Saturday, November 19.

After seeing the show, Clinton made her requisite visit backstage where she signed the prop plaster arm cast that Platt wears in the show.

Taking to Twitter, Platt wrote: "Our real president @HillaryClinton graced us with her presence at @DearEvanHansen tonight. And she signed my cast."

"Dear Evan Hansen" opened at the Music Box Theatre to rave reviews on December 4, 2016, where it's broken all box office records and has struck a chord with critics and audiences alike.

Hillary-spotting has become a common occurrence on the Great White Way this year and a thrill for audiences and cast members alike. Since losing the election (despite winning the popular vote) to billionaire tv reality star Donald Trump, the former Secretary of State has taken advantage of her time off and proximity to New York's theater district to take in the best of Broadway.

On her way out of the Music Box Theater on Wednesday nigh, Clinton drew applause on the street as she entered her car. "I'm still with her!" yelled one fan.

She drove away, "waving through a window."
