A Colorado congresswoman and a companion were escorted from a Denver theater Sunday evening after management called police to remove them, according to a report from The Denver Post.
Denver Arts & Venues reported that two patrons were asked to leave the city-owned Buell Theatre during a performance of the Broadway musical “Beetlejuice,” the report noted.
The report did not name Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) or her companion, but the congresswoman fessed up in a post to her X account.
“It’s true, I did thoroughly enjoy the AMAZING Beetlejuice at the Buell Theatre and I plead guilty to laughing and singing too loud!” remarked Boebert.
“Everyone should go see it if you get the chance this week and please let me know how it ends!” she added.
The two were reportedly asked during intermission to stop being so loud after theater security received complaints from three other audience members about their behavior, the report noted.
Five minutes into the second act, another complaint was lodged about them being loud and recording, an action prohibited during shows.
“They told me they would not leave,” an usher reportedly recounted in the venue’s report. “I told them that they need to leave the theater and if they do not, they will be trespassing. The patrons said they would not leave.”
“I told them I would (be) going to get Denver Police,” the usher continued. “They said go get them.”
Drew Sexton, Boebert’s campaign manager, acknowledged to The Denver Post that Boebert took a photo during the performance but she was unaware photography was not allowed.
Boebert denied vaping during the show, Sexton claimed.
“I can confirm the stunning and salacious rumors: in her personal time, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is indeed a supporter of the performing arts (gasp!) and, to the dismay of a select few, enthusiastically enjoyed a weekend performance of ‘Beetlejuice,'” Sexton stated.
He further encouraged everyone to watch the play but reminded them to leave their phones outside.
