We thought food was only allowed in Broadway theaters during INTERMISSION, anyway! But, perhaps this was a special case?
Audra McDonald, star of the Porgy and Bess broadway revival, was so infuriated by an audience member’s noisy chip-bag rustling during her evening performance, that she tweeted during the show:
“Dear audience member crinkling ur bag of chips like it was a musical instrument…if I can get through the 1st act w/out chips, so can you.”
The actress later made light of the situation, however, tweeting:
“Forgive the bad grammar in my angry stop crinkling ur chips tweet & Mr/Ms audience member? Enjoy ur chips all u want now. It’s intermission.”
HA! For serious though, that was kinda RUDE! Proper theater etiquette, ya’ll!
