My Pet Peeves

After many, many years of going to the theatre, I have decided to compile a list of my pet peeves of what not to do while attending a Broadway show. So here goes....

The Latecomers-

It is 7:50 PM I am sitting in my seat for the 8PM showitme. About 8:20PM two people come walking down the aisle and stop right beside me and expect me to get up so they can get in.... I grumble and slide my legs to the side and let them climb over me. If myself and the rest of the Theatre can be there on time why can't they?

The Hungry One-

Sitting in my seat waiting for the show to start the overture starts and what do my ears hear? It is the crinkling of paper. I glare over my shoulder and see the person behind me has decided to open a candy bar and proceed to eat it... Hello...were you not sitting here for the last 20 minutes Why now???

The Wanna Be-

This is by far my favorite. The person that sits down next to me and thinks they can sing as good as the performers up on the stage..Hey, I paid to see the show not listen to you as you sing a song you think you know at the top of your lungs.

The Chatter Box-

Then you have the person that thinks it's okay to have a conversation with the person they are with during the course of the show. Hey if you do not want to pay attention to the show pick yourself up and leave. Let the others around you enjoy it.

It's A Family Affair-

Last but not least the parents that bring the kids to see a show and let them talk and kick the seat in front of them without even blinking an eye. Come on people have a little respect.

Whew! Thanks for letting me vent and remember next time you go to a Broadway show be on the lookout!!!!!!
