Introduction


On Sunday night, American Representative Lauren Boebert was escorted out of a Denver theater when several audience members complained that she was causing a disturbance.

Event Details:
In a report shared with NPR, the Denver Center for Performing Arts stated that two guests had to be removed from the performance of “Beetlejuice: The Musical” for violating theater policies.

Boebert’s Reaction:
The theater did not specifically mention Boebert by name, but Colorado’s Republican confirmed her identity through a tweet, “It’s true, I had a blast at the Buell Theater enjoying the incredible ‘Beetlejuice’ musical performance, and I laughed and sang along a lot!”

Policy Violation:
According to the report, the removed individuals were observed using cell phones to record performances, which is against the theater’s rules.

Warnings and Removal:
Theater staff received three separate complaints about the behavior, prompting security to issue warnings to both supervisors during intermission. However, five minutes later, another complaint was filed, leading to the removal of both supervisors.

Resistance and Resolution:
One of them reportedly resisted leaving, stating, “They told me they’re not going. I told them they had to leave the theater, and if they don’t, they’ll be trespassing. Supervisors said they’re not going.

Boebert’s Interaction:
In footage shared by local news agencies, Boebert can be seen in a suit jacket sitting next to a man in front of the 2,800-seat theater as the audience applauds at the end of a scene. As soon as the audience begins clapping, the couple is approached by two security guards who remain nearby.

After a brief exchange, they eventually get up to leave.

Friendly Gesture:
Boebert turns around to shake hands with the man before exiting the theater. She appears to take a selfie with him at one point.

Boebert’s Manager’s Statement:
In a statement provided to NPR, Boebert’s campaign manager downplayed the report.

“I can confirm the fantastic and hilarious rumors: In her personal time, Congresswoman Laren Boebert is indeed a supporter of performing arts (laughter!) and, due to the disappointment of a few select individuals, she enjoyed the closing performance of ‘Beetlejuice’ with great enthusiasm,” wrote Drew Sexton.

Background:
It’s essential to understand that Lauren Boebert is currently running for re-election as the Representative for Colorado’s Third Congressional District.

Before Starting Her Career:
According to reports from the Denver Post, before entering office, Boebert had multiple run-ins with the law, with at least four separate arrests on minor charges.

Initial Days in U.S. Capitol:
In her initial days at the U.S. Capitol, Boebert faced restrictions. She initially refused to submit to Capitol Police checks of her purse when entering House floors, causing a shutdown of the newly implemented metal detectors after January 6, 2021.

The Incident:
According to Congresswoman Boebert, the incident in question involved her speaking loudly in support of the show during the performance of “Beetlejuice” in Denver. Many theatergoers were engaged in a heated debate about how to handle disrespectful audience behavior.

Her Removal from the “Beetlejuice” Musical:
The incident led to Boebert and another individual being asked to leave the Boettcher Theatre during the performance. This was confirmed in a statement by the Denver Arts and Venues, which operates the facility housing the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.

Allegations Against Boebert:
The incident allegedly involved accusations of creating a disturbance during the show. It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time Boebert has courted controversy – she gained notoriety last year for heckling President Biden during the State of the Union address, and previously, she declined a search of her bag by Capitol Security.

The Performance:
The incident occurred during a performance of “Beetlejuice,” a musical based on the popular movie of the same name, set in a quirky haunted house. The musical had garnered excellent reviews, becoming a fan favorite and enjoying a successful nationwide tour.

Statement from Denver Center for the Performing Arts:
The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, which includes the Buell Theatre where “Beetlejuice” is currently running, issued a brief statement, indicating that they have policies in place for the conduct of their patrons and that, “We were made aware that two patrons were not abiding by these policies. Such policies were implemented as part of new security measures post-January 6th.”

Denver City’s Response:
The incident was reported by the Denver Post, which included some details but did not mention Boebert by name. According to the report, patrons were warned during intermission about disruptive behavior that included “vapor, singing, [and] creating a disturbance,” and three complaints were reportedly made by other attendees.

Boebert’s Reaction:
While Boebert still seems to enjoy the show, despite being asked to leave, she humorously shared her experience on social media, saying, “It’s true, I had a blast enjoying the incredible ‘Beetlejuice’ performance at the Buell Theatre, and I laughed and sang along way too much! If you get a chance this week, everyone should see it and please let me know how it ends!”

Congresswoman Boebert’s Unexpected Theater Incident

Congresswoman Boebert, who is running for re-election next year, also hinted at the incident in a post on X, known as Twitter. In this post, she shared a link to purchase tickets for the “Beetle Juice” performance at the Denver Theater.

She further added, “If you get a chance this week, everyone should see it, and please let me know how it turns out!”

When asked to comment, Boebert’s congressional office put an end to her campaign. A spokesperson for the Denver Arts and Venues agency declined to comment.

The report stated that both supervisors were “deliberate,” and about five minutes after another complaint was made during the second act, it was said that they were “loud” and recording the performance. Supervisors have been prevented from taking pictures or recording during the show.

The report said that eventually, both of them left the theater on their own terms. Security video from the city of Denver, obtained through NBC affiliate KUSA, shows them being escorted out of the theater during the performance.
