I was at the performance of Bella Bella last night, watching the show (I thought it was pretty good, although not Harvey's best work) when an old man gets up part way through the show, literally pees on the carpet, and then just walks back to his seat and watches the rest of the show. I honestly thought I must have been hallucinating, but someone next to me at stage door asked Harvey about it and he confirmed that it did in fact happen, and he tweeted about it too.https://twitter.com/HarveyFierstein/status/1188881938167357444I'm called to mind the thread here a while back about the "Betrayal Masturbator", and I'm seriously wondering what's going on. Why does there seem to be no consequences for these people, and why do they do this? It doesn't seem to be making a point about anything, and even with phones I can at least understand that we now live in a society where people can't handle not being plugged in 24/7 even at the expense of everyone around them.
I know I might regret this... but, what is the story about a "Ripley Grier pooper"? Thanks?Never mind. I googled it and got my answer. OY!

I’m surprised the man didn’t run up on stage and attempt to pee in the toilet on set. But kidding aside, the man must be suffering from dementia.
I think the Betrayal masturbator story is a hoax. If any of you have seen this production of Betrayal, it is so quiet throughout the entire show that one could hear a pin drop. If it did happen, more audience members would have heard it. lol.As for the elderly man, hopefully next time he goes to the theater he will be more prepared and wear Depends.
Clutching my Bella knock-off hat! Just when you thought you've heard everything. As Cindy Adams would say......
