I've always thought that sitting under the overhang was bad luck.

At last night's performance of Grace with Paul Rudd and Ed Asner, neither of whom could really be thought of as vomit-inducing.

Ah, you beat me to posting this! :) I'm shocked this happened at "GRACE" of all shows.

Ewwww! Lol. That would suck.
Hi! I'm Zach. I'm 13 years old, and love the theatre. I live on the outskirts of NYC, and pop in to catch about 1 or 2 shows per month.

Well, since the article says the cause was drinking, I would've assumed it would be "Rock of Ages". "Grace" doesn't seem like a hard partyin' crowd.

You'd be surprised. It's quiet ones you need to watch out for. Growing up I thought the same way about hard rockers and it turned they were all teetolers and vegetarians. There were more drinkers and junkies at a Mamas and Papas show!

Talk about a bad review.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Puts me in mind of the story about Sir Thomas Beecham, when he was conducting the triumphal scene from Aida. They were using live elephants and at one point, one of the elephants defecated on the stage. Sir Thomas stopped conducting, turned to the audience and said, "Not very polite, but God what a critic!"

"I'm shocked this happened at "GRACE" of all shows."

With the high balcony and the slowly revolving stage... who would've thought.

I always wanted Mary Poppins to puke all over the audience at the end.

‘Rock’ of sobriety

Producers of Broadway’s “Rock of Ages” were not amused to be brought into the mess that occurred when an audience member vomited over the balcony at Paul Rudd’s play “Grace.” A rep for Rudd’s show had told us of the theatergoer who heaved over a mezzanine railing at the Cort Theatre on Wednesday onto a dozen audience members sitting below, “We suspect that the audience member in question meant to see ‘Rock of Ages’ and stumbled into the wrong theater.” A “Rock” rep responded, “Rock of Ages resents the implication that our patrons can’t handle their alcohol with ‘grace.’ Unlike what goes on at the Cort Theatre, clearly, what happens at ‘Rock of Ages’ stays at ‘Rock of Ages.’ ”

That may have been posted on FB, but it's from the New York Post.
