I want to post something, but how do I get the spoiler filter to do so?

I (much to my regret) did not see the show, but I once saw a bootleg of the finale between Laura and Percival in The Woman in White, and...
...the train startled the heck out of people.

However, I have come to the conclusion that I legitimately screamed."One of my fondest memories is seeing a matinee of this with a bunch of screaming school kids on a field trip. I’ll never forget when after the show a schoolgirl, frantically playing with her hair, exclaimed, “I’ve never been so scared in my life!” The English accent tickled me.

" That made me gasp when I simply read the script. Same goes for the Act I finale of GLORIA. Also, when I saw The Band's Visit, in "Answer Me", when the entire cast sings in unison. I think I've ever been brought to tears by thirteen people harmonizing before.
When Felix reveals that he has AIDS as the end of the first act of The Normal Heart.
There's a bunch that I've heard but especially in the productions of Les Misérables I've seen people always gasp when
Gavroche gets shot the first time because it's so sudden and heartbreaking.
broadway86 said: "Quinn's fatal decision near the end of The Ferryman. It was amazing."100%. Both times I saw it, the collective gasp of the audience was huge. Never felt anything like it. Also concur with those who mentioned the end of Hadestown.
I made a trip to London this summer to see the original production of Les Mis before it closed as I had only ever seen the new staging. When I saw the barricade come together for the first time I gasped. Pure theatre magic.
There was a time, earlier in the run, and still happened near me last year where the ending, and each time a character from "The Wizard of Oz" is "created" in Wicked that there would be a gasp of it all coming together.Also, in additon to the yelling and talking back to the performers, there were some gasps when I saw the original tour of 'The Color Purple" back in the mid 2000's.
Not a live musical, but in the same vein the one that I can remember...
When I saw La La Land in the cinema and Mia's husband came out and it wasn't Sebastian.
It was interesting to see Next to Normal early in previews at Second Stage through closing on Broadway because the level of the gasp when Gabe's secret is revealed went from a giant collective gasp to only one or two people in the audience by closing. I remember two in August:Osage County that always happened. The "I'M RUNNING THINGS NOW!" and later when Little Charles's secret comes out.
When Margaret walks in at the end of act one in The Light in the Piazza
THAT SCENE in DEATHTRAP. I've never, nver, never, heard an audience scream and jump out of fright. I saw the show twice and the reaction was always the same. For those who haven't witnessed it...I don't want to spoil it for you.
End of Act 3 of The FerrymanEnd of Act 1 of Grand Horizons. People around me were discussing for the entire intermission.Network:
The scene where he runs through the audience. It starts with a loud noise and everyone around me was gasping.Also at the end when it becomes clear they were using a body double
The transformation of the decrepit stage into Loveland in the original Follies. No CGI, no projections, just the genius of Boris Aronson, assisted by Sondheim's fanfare. When the lights came up, the audience gasped, then cheered.
I would love to see a first class revival of DEATHTRAP with Bryan Cranston as Sidney.
End of the first act of Gloria.Lucy's death in the pre-Broadway tryouts of Jekyll & Hyde. The audience was squirming at the staging of that scene. It was insanely creepy and effective. Then it went to Broadway and turned to crap.
