Obama and daughter Malia attend 'The Price' on Broadway

Former President Barack Obama surprised Broadway theater-goers Friday when he and daughter Malia attended the evening efficiency of "The Price."

The daddy-daughter duo headed backstage right after the play -- a new revival of the Arthur Miller classic -- and met with the cast, such as Mark Ruffalo, Danny DeVito, Tony Shalhoub and Jessica Hecht.

The Roundabout Theatre Company tweeted a photo of the pair with the cast, writing, "We are so honored to have had President @barackobama in our theater this evening for #ThePriceBway!"

The president and Malia had been spotted leaving the American Airlines Theatre by means of a stage door, and had been greeted by catcalls and shouts of "there he is!" by passers-by.

In "The Value," a police officer feels that life has passed him by although he took care of his late father. He and his estranged brother will have to reunite to sell off their father's possessions.

The Obama clan is no stranger no Broadway, getting attended various shows during his presidency, including "Hamilton," "A Raisin in the Sun," "Joe Turner's Come and Gone," "Memphis," "Kinky Boots,"
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," "Sister Act," "The Trip to Bountiful," "Motown the Musical" and "The Addams Family members."
