President Donald Trump is getting the boos while his predecessor Barack Obama is enjoying his retirement.
Just after returning from a holiday in the British Virgin Islands, where we saw him playing all those water games with Virgin founder, Richard Branson, Obama is back in the US.
He was cheered by hundreds of bystanders after being spotted in New York on Friday.
He was later spotted with his daughter Malia Obama on Broadway, watching aa revival of Arthur Miller’s “The Price.” They attended the play starring Danny DeVito, John Turturro, Tony Shalhoub and Jessica Hecht at the American Airlines Theatre on Friday.
In “The Price,” a police officer feels that life has passed him by while he took care of his now-dead father. He and his estranged brother must reunite to sell off dad’s possessions.
The Obamas were big boosters of Broadway during his presidency, especially “Hamilton,” “A Raisin in the Sun” and “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone.” Members of the Obama family also attended “Memphis,” “Kinky Boots,” “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” “Sister Act,” “The Trip to Bountiful,” “Motown the Musical” and “The Addams Family.”
