In an unexpected turn of events on a seemingly ordinary Sunday evening, surveillance footage from Denver’s renowned Buell Theater made headlines as it captured the ejection of Republican Representative Lauren Boebert and her companion from the popular musical, “Beetlejuice.” The incident, which occurred on September 13, 2023, has garnered significant attention, with theater officials citing “multiple complaints” from fellow patrons as the reason behind this dramatic exit.

The Controversial Exit

The Buell Theater, a hub for performing arts in Denver, unwittingly became the stage for a political figure’s unanticipated exit. The surveillance video, exclusively obtained by CNN affiliate KUSA, reveals the unfolding of events. Boebert and her companion were first addressed by theater officials while seated in Orchestra C Row E. After a brief conversation, the two can be seen leaving their seats, obediently following the officials. As the footage continues, it shows Boebert and her companion accompanying the theater staff through the venue, ultimately exiting onto the bustling streets of Denver. It was an unceremonious departure from a performance that they had presumably anticipated enjoying.

Complaints Lead to Action

The controversy that led to this expulsion began with a series of complaints lodged by fellow patrons. Denver Arts & Venues, the organization overseeing the Buell Theater, promptly emailed CNN with a detailed report of the incident. According to the report, three separate complaints had been received regarding the patrons occupying Orchestra C Row E seats 1 and 2. These complaints included allegations of vaping, disruptive singing, and causing disturbances within the theater. It was clear that some patrons were not enjoying the performance to the fullest due to the actions of Boebert and her companion.

A Warning Unheeded

The report further states that when the theater’s ushers arrived at the scene, the patrons were not in their seats. Upon their return, the theater official informed them of the complaints and urged them to be respectful to their neighbors. It was made clear that if another complaint were to be received, they would be asked to leave. Unfortunately, the patrons chose not to heed this warning. They responded in an argumentative manner, asserting that they were in harmony with everyone around them. The theater official, however, emphasized the communal nature of the theater experience and reiterated that they would be asked to leave if their disruptive behavior persisted.

Escalation and Exit

Despite these warnings, the situation escalated when another complaint surfaced, this time accusing the patrons of being excessively loud and recording the performance. At this point, the theater official made the decisive call. The patrons were informed that they needed to vacate the theater, and if they refused to do so, they would be considered trespassing. Undeterred, Boebert and her companion remained defiant. When informed that the Denver Police would be called if they did not leave voluntarily, they challenged the official to do so. Eventually, they chose to leave of their own accord, under the watchful eye of the theater staff.

Unconfirmed Identity

Notably, the incident report provided by Denver Arts & Venues did not include the names of the patrons involved, nor could theater officials confirm that Representative Lauren Boebert was among those escorted out. This lack of official confirmation leaves room for speculation and debate regarding the identity of the individuals in question. Brian Kitts, spokesperson for Denver Arts & Venues, emphasized this point when responding to CNN’s inquiry. He stated, “We would not confirm that. We didn’t have names attached to our incident report since there was no police contact.”

Boebert’s Response

Following this incident, Representative Boebert took to social media to address the situation. In a post on Tuesday, she candidly admitted to enjoying the performance of “Beetlejuice” at the Buell Theatre. She humorously confessed to being “guilty of laughing and singing too loud” during the show, showcasing her lighter side. In an official statement shared with CNN by Boebert’s campaign manager, Drew Sexton, Boebert denied allegations of vaping during the performance. She did, however, admit to using her cellphone to capture a picture of the show, unaware that photography was prohibited. Sexton humorously remarked, “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.'”

Conclusion

The unexpected ejection of US Representative Lauren Boebert from the musical “Beetlejuice” at Denver’s Buell Theater has captured the attention of the media and the public alike. Surveillance footage of the incident has added an intriguing layer of intrigue to this story. While the official incident report does not confirm the identity of the patrons involved, the incident serves as a reminder that even political figures, in their personal time, may engage in unexpected and relatable activities such as enjoying a night at the theater. In conclusion, this incident at the Buell Theater provides a unique snapshot of the intersection between politics, entertainment, and public perception. As the story continues to unfold, it remains to be seen how it will impact the public image of Representative Boebert and her ongoing political career.
