Lauren Boebert kicked out of 'Beetlejuice' show

 September 14, 2023

Republican congresswoman Lauren Boebert was kicked out of a musical theater in Denver on Sunday for causing a "disturbance."

Surveillance video from the venue was released showing the pro-Trump lawmaker leaving a performance of "Beetlejuice" at the Buell Theatre with a male companion.

The theater said that there were complaints about two patrons singing, vaping, and using their phones, the Denver Post reported.

The patrons received a warning during the intermission and were then asked to leave once the behavior persisted. They refused to leave, which led the theater to call police.

"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," an usher said in an incident report.

On the way out, the patrons were reportedly heard saying things like "do you know who I am," "I am on the board" and "I will be contacting the mayor."

A surveillance video shows Boebert appearing to get confrontational repeatedly with a security guard as she's being seen out with a male companion.

The man was identified by the Daily Mail as Aspen bar owner Quinn Gallagher, a Democrat. Boebert is in the middle of divorcing her husband, Jason.

Boebert reacts

Boebert responded to the reports with characteristic irreverence on Twitter, writing, "It's true, I did thoroughly enjoy the AMAZING Beetlejuice at the Buell Theatre and I plead guilty to laughing and singing too loud!"

But her campaign manager Drew Sexton denied that she used a vape during the show.

“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,’ which the Denver Post itself described as ‘zany’, ‘outrageous’, and a ‘lusty riot,’” Sexton said.

“She appreciates the Buell Theatre’s strict enforcement of their no photos policy and only wishes the Biden Administration could uphold our border laws as thoroughly and vigorously.”

Boebert won re-election to a second term last year in a cliffhanger election that stretched on for several weeks.
