VIDEO: HAND TO GOD Reacts to Phone-Charging Incident with Hilarious New Promo
As BWW reported yesterday, during a recent performance of Broadway's Hand to God, an audience member quietly made his way up on the stage of the hit comedy to plug his cell phone in to what he believed to be a working outlet.
Sources who were present at the performance told Broadwayadjacent.com that the front of house staff quickly responded to the intruder, retrieving the phone and only delaying the performance by five minutes.
It remains unclear whether the brazen theater-goer was truly unaware of the consequences of his actions or perhaps was acting on a dare. According to the site, upon receiving his phone back, he asked the usher, "Well, where can I charge it?"
Following the news, HAND TO GOD turned to their official Facebook page to share not only BWW's feature story on how our readers reacted to the incident (read it here!), but also a hilarious new promo offering audience members an extra perk if they attend the show. Check it out below!
About Hand to God:
The new American play Hand to God is now running at the Booth Theatre. The hilarious and provocative comedy centers on shy, inquisitive student Jason, who finds an outlet for his burgeoning creativity at the Christian Puppet Ministry in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. Hand to God features Steven Boyer as Jason/Tyrone; Geneva Carr, in her Broadway debut, as Margery; Tony Award nominee Marc Kudisch as Pastor Greg; Sarah Stiles as Jessica; and Michael Oberholtzer, in his Broadway debut, as Timothy.
