When Bernie Sanders showed up to the presidential inauguration in his signature campaign trail parka and mittens ensemble and carrying a stack of mail, fans of the senator took to social to poke a little fun at his Vermont practicality. But it was the shot of him sitting in a folding chair, arms and legs crossed, looking highly uninterested, that really inspired the Theatre Twitter meme-makers. Who hasn't seen "that guy" in the audience before? (And heaven forbid that it's during previews! What if he's a critic...)

Scroll on to see a few of our favorite Broadway-inspired Bernie memes, placing him on stage, in the audience, and...yikes...behind the casting table. Even Broadway's own Bernie (Bernadette Peters, that is) joined in on the fun.
