Our audiences at the Broadhurst have been incredibly wonderful. We have gotten marvelous receptions and we up there on stage are revved up by their enthusiasm.
Two days ago, seated in the front row were a man and a woman. And they gave us a show of their own.
I didn't see much of the action, but our boys sure did, and didn't hesitate to recount and demonstrate exactly what they saw. There was a lot (as in A LOT) of lip-locking (which I actually did catch)... groping... touching... fondling. Sure, we made fun of them, but in all seriousness, we all thought it was ridiculous and disrespectful. Some thought they just didn't care, others theorized they had planned their display.
BUT COME ON!!! Did they not think that others around them AND us on stage could see them? HELLO! They were in the friggin front row of a MUSICAL, not the back row of a movie theatre!!!
After my anger had subsided, it made me think just what would possess anyone to make such a display of themselves. Were they just horny and couldn't wait to get back to their hotel? Were they adventurers and wanted to intentionally show off just how horny they were? Did they have no idea just how stupid they looked (not to mention, not particularly good looking)?
Who knows... perhaps some of you here have engaged in such shenanigans. My advice: don't. It angers the performers and audience members around you. If you want to get into someone's pants, don't do it after spending $250 a pop on premium seats. Getting a hotel room is far cheaper, and more appropriate.
