WATCH: Audience at “The Color Purple” go wild when Hillary shows up
Clinton, who has been keeping a low profile since her loss to president-elect Donald Trump, attended the play, which fittingly has themes of overcoming hardships and women’s rights, with husband Bill Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea.
She was met with cheers and requests for photos upon entering, and was once again applauded when she was acknowledged from stage after the show. It was a much friendlier call out than Vice President-elect Mike Pence received when he attended “Hamilton.”
Actress Patrice Covington gave the farewell speech on behalf of the cast and noted that there were “a lot of really awesome famous and notable people here today.”
“I’m not going to call all of them out,” she continued, according to The New York Times. “I know you already know them.”
Covington then waved to the direction where the Clintons sat, prompting a cheer from the audience.
There were calls of, “We love you, Hillary,” and “God bless you.” She reportedly responded with, “God bless you.”
Other celebrities in attendance include Jonathan Groff, Mariska Hargitay, Gayle King, Debra Messing, Leslie Odom Jr., Billy Porter, Phylicia Rashad, and Anna Wintour.
As far as future sightings go, Hillary and Bill Clinton plan on attending Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
