I couldn't stand the prehistoric pace of Lupone's GYPSY and ran like hell at the interval.

Felt I was at the wrong party at Elaine Paige's ANYTHING GOES many years ago.  

I wish I'd left SPRING AWAKENING which was an interesting show but an abysmal staging.

Recently left HALF A SIXPENCE at the interval having heard about banjos about 57 times.

My philosophy is: if you took a mouthful of a dinner and it tasted off, you wouldn't eat the rest to see if it got better!

I left during the intermission of Wonderful Town. I was bored out of my mind.

I lasted until intermission on this one.  Funny for 10 minutes and then became tiresome pretty quickly.  

The only review of a show that matters is your own.

CATS. Left right after memory. I do not understand the hype with this show.

I've only walked a dozen or so times in 40 years.
The most recent was Saturday, Nantucket Sleigh Ride.

I walked out of Breakfast at Tiffany's at the interval as it was just dire. I was tempted to walk out of A Very Very Very Dark Matter as it was awful and offensive, but there was no interval and I was in the middle of a row.

A community production of sweeney Todd. The interval only came 90' in, not a second too soon. Performances were surprisingly good, but nearly all musicals bore me to tear. I tought I would give this a chance...nevermore will I listen to friends when I know better.

A friend and I walked out of Rent...truly painful and I was sorely tempted to walk out of Hamilton a week or so ago. Over hyped, way over priced and far too much audience over the top reaction...is it a trait picked up from America?

I walked out at the interval of the last UK tour of Chicago. I Was looking forward to it Cos I had seen the last 3 uk tours of this show and seen the film but never seen the London production. I was looking forward to it Cos I had seen the guy playing Billy Flynn when he was in Eastenders. But I just did not like his version of Billy Flynn.

I left at the intermission of Mean Girls. I kept thinking how doing my laundry would be more entertains than this mindless teenage dreck.  Good decision.  

And I usually love Casey Nicolaus Shows.

I wish I'd have left at interval last week at the Young Vic's Death of a Salesman.

I love me some Arthur Miller, but holly **** what a boring ass play full of unlikable, delusional, dip****s.

Performances were great, but I was absolutely bored senseless by the material.

I often like to give shows a chance by returning for the 2nd act, but I hated Sheridan Smithís portrayal of Elle Woods, and could not endure another act of her croaky singing and chav portrayal of Elle, in the West Endís ĎLegally Blondeí.

Just had 3 nights of concerts in a row. Ruthie Henshall-brilliant; Megan Hilty-a powerhouse with 40 piece orchestra supporting, AND Megan Mullally 'Nancye & Beth'--40mins of that crxp and I was out of there. Musicians were great, their harmonies were great but what were these 2 hillbillies in pink trackies doing up there,?and that non-dialogue talking about 2 chairs the entire time!! The 'dancing', in unison I'll admit, was something between Cabaret and line dancing. Obscure songs but really--Harbour Lights in a black out doing circles with lights at the end of their fingers?? Amateur night in Hicksville with these 2 hillbillies[sorry hillbillies].

A review said the best were the last 10mins. I was back in my hotel by then with a cold one on the balcony---utter peace but many thanks to Ruthie and the other Megan for sheer musical brilliance.
