The “SCREAMINGLY GOOD FUN!” promised by the “Beetlejuice” musical was not had by all as a Colorado congresswoman’s alleged behavior got her removed.
On Sunday, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R) was spotted at Denver’s Buell Theatre, but an incident report obtained by The Denver Post and surveillance footage confirmed that she and an unidentified man were not permitted to stay.
According to the outlet, venue officials had accused the pair of “vaping, singing, recording and ‘causing a disturbance'” for which they had been warned about during the intermission. “Since there was already multiple complaints, I informed the patrons that if there was another issue that they would be asked to leave,” an employee had detailed. “The patrons were argumentative. Saying they were in concert with everyone around them.”
As seen in footage obtained by 9News, the duo had to be escorted out of the city-owned property and an usher explained in the incident report, “They told me they would not leave. 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. They said go get them.”
The montage of the couple parading out into the streets of the Mile High City showed her pausing to take a selfie at one point, appearing to flip off the security official at another and later holding a finger up to him as the man was left shaking his head. Boebert reportedly told security “stuff like, ‘Do you know who I am?’ ‘I am on the board.’ ‘I will be contacting the mayor.'”
Outside, the legislator could be seen twirling beside her male companion multiple times before the end of the surveillance footage.
As she put it on her personal 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!…Everyone should go see it if you get the chance this week and please let me know how it ends!”
Meanwhile, campaign manager Drew Sexton responded to the allegations brought against Boebert and told the Post that she denied vaping during the show and claimed she was unaware of the policy prohibiting photos from being taken.
Sexton wrote in a statement, “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.'”
Further, the campaign manager expressed how Boebert lauded the musical for its “fantastic cast, tremendous visuals and plenty of loud laughs” with “a gentle reminder” for patrons “to leave their phones outside of the venue.”
The incident immediately became fodder to attack the representative’s reputation.
Do better, Lauren. You embarrass yourself and represent your voters poorly.

However, the congresswoman was not without support as others celebrated her for her ongoing efforts in Washington, D.C. as well as for the show recommendation.
Thank for the recommendation. Keep fighting

Good for you @laurenboebert While I live in the Denver metropolitan area, I chose not to attend because of the negative woke message which has crept into the show. It’s good to see a local representative pushing back. Keep up the good work and thanks for the inspiration.

I love the movie. I will have to check out the play. I live in Longmont so it’s not a far drive to Buell Theatre.
