I live in European so attend the West End frequently and luckily have not encountered this behaviour. I have heard about it. There’s a book called A Good Night out for Girls by academic Elaine Aston which talks about this type of Hen or batchelortte night out theatre which I try avoid.
I will say that I personally noticed the change in the security of the West End after the Paris attacks especially the Bataclan.

I don't understand the hate for this show you talk about.
As a queer theatre practitioner/academic I champion trans rights but this phenomena to rewrite history is misguided. I adore Pose but they wrote out Drag Queens yet Drag Queens were a huge part of Ball Culture, Pepper LaBeija was a Drag Queen.

MollyJeanneMusic said: "Both of the long-running shows that announced their closing in the past few days - Waitress and Beautiful - have had impressive runs, but they were starting to fall below their weekly nut. It was probably wise for both of them to quit while they were ahead, a thought which was, I will add, predicted by many people on the board. (For the record, I chose not to believe them until a walk through Times Square in early June when I saw people in waitress uniforms se
