An Exciting Endgame-Steppenwolf's Endgame Closes 6/6An Exciting Endgame-Steppenwolf's Endgame Closes 6/6
by Trish Vignola - Jun 6, 2010

The audience of last night's show behaved absolutely terribly and made the show incredibly hard to watch. Yeah, Beckett is not an easy playwright to absorb. I get that. However, that does not give you the right to let your cell phone ring multiple times in a show. Unless you are a doctor (and in that case, put it on vibrate), you are not that important. Oh, and the coup de grace? The man next to me was outright heckling William Petersen. What? This isn't Zannies (and even if it was, that's still not acceptable). (more...)
