A video emerged on Wednesday depicting Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) leaving a “Beetlejuice” musical performance on Sunday evening.

The footage, sourced from 9News, offers over four minutes of surveillance clips from different vantage points. Initially, within the confines of the Denver theater, Boebert is noticed in a discussion with an individual who seems to be an usher. This lasts for roughly a minute before she collects her belongings and departs the venue with another individual, presumably her accompanying guest.

The camera subsequently shifts its focus, capturing Boebert and her guest as they move through various hallways leading outside the establishment. The final segment shows the duo outside, distancing themselves from the premises.

This revelation followed a report from The Denver Post on Tuesday afternoon. The report, largely based on a document retrieved from the venue’s authorities, didn’t specify names but mentioned the ejection of two attendees from the Broadway musical’s Sunday show due to certain disruptions, which reportedly involved vaping, singing, recording, and creating a commotion.

Drew Sexton, Boebert’s campaign head, verified on Wednesday to The Hill that Boebert had indeed left the venue that Sunday. However, he refuted the vaping allegations.

The Denver Post cited the incident document, revealing that Boebert was requested to depart five minutes post-intermission, after receiving a prior caution about her purported conduct. The newspaper mentioned that she initially got cautioned due to three grievances, but a subsequent grievance led to her departure.

In an official statement, Sexton commented, “To clarify the circulating speculations: Yes, in her personal time, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is an admirer of arts and was genuinely enthused during the ‘Beetlejuice’ show over the weekend.”

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, on Tuesday, Boebert expressed, “Indeed, I wholeheartedly relished the incredible Beetlejuice performance at the Buell Theatre. My only fault? Perhaps laughing and singing a tad too loudly.”

She further promoted the musical and humorously added, “And if someone could inform me about its conclusion, I’d appreciate it!”
