Bernie Sanders, Wife Attend Broadway Musical 'Hamilton,' About Founding Father Alexander Hamilton

The couple received a standing ovation, and headed backstage afterwards.

Sanders arrived in Times Square, exited his motorcade, and walked a block to the 1,319-seat Richard Rodgers Theater, where he and Jane entered through a side door. Although he didn't enter through the main entrance, theatergoers waiting in line cheered as he walked by, waving with one hand, and holding Jane's hand with the other.

Sanders was mobbed by theatergoers inside the lobby and received a standing ovation when he entered the theater. The Vermont senator also met with the cast backstage after the performance. Both the Sanders campaign and a source with the production say Sanders paid face value for his tickets.
