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

The daddy-daughter duo headed backstage after the play — a new revival of the Arthur Miller classic — and met with the cast, including 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 were spotted leaving the American Airlines Theatre through a stage door, and were greeted by catcalls and shouts of “there he is!” by passers-by.
