The behaviour of the audience was so badly behaved this afternoon i can not believe it. I felt sorry for the actors on stage.
There are just certain things you don't do in a theatre.

1. Take a baby who decides to cry periodically throughout the show.
2. Arrive 20 minutes into the show and then try and climb to your seat
3.Stand up for the whole show (Yes, the WHOLE show)
4. Watch while your kids stand up for the whole show (And block the view of the people behind).
5. Allow your kids to scream and shout constantly
6. Flip down the empty seat next to you 100 times to see how loud you can get it to bang back into place
7. Sing Along to the show
8. Leave to use the toilets TWICE during the first act (and 1 time was 10 mins before the end of the act).
9. Allow your "Now You're Gone" ringtone to blast through the theatre during one of the quietest scenes of the show.
10. Remember the acting scenes are also part of the show and people would rather watch them than hear about 10 conversations going on throughout the entire scene.

And one for good luck - Lean right forward over the bars creating the biggest knock on effect of leaning forward ever, for which there would have been no need if you had just sat back.

I actually believe that this audience can not be beat for being the worst audience I have ever seen at a theatre before. Unbelievable.

Q: Why the f*** did you go in the first place?
A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

Was a little like that when i saw it in Toronto. lots of walking about and screaming at the songs. It was strange, it didn't feel like i was at an actual show at all, more like one of those touring Sessamie Street shows for kids. Fortunately i bought one of those cheap tickets up in the back so i didn't really mind. I hated the movie, but found the stage version to be passable, particularly the sets, simple yet effective.

Main reason I went was because I was looking after my sister for the day and id also done this show with my amateur group so wanted to see it done properly.

Have rang the theatre to complain now theyre gonna be in touch.
