I wish there was a like button, but this is very often me.
After a fairly mediocre and less than scintillating performand of Phantom, I remained seating for the same reasons and was chided by a group of American Ladies. When I commented that i didn't think the performance worthy of a standing ovation, they told me that in the USA EVERYONE get an standing ovation EVERY time!!

Perhaps that's because they like to go to the type of shows where the final number is a singalong, and the cast tell everyone to stand up and join in, thus guaranteeing a standing ovation. That really annoys me. I often sit at the very front of the auditorium, and would feel very conscious of standing when nobody else is behind me so I usually sneak a cheeky look!

Please tell me that this is not a sweeping generalisation. I am attracted to shows like ROA and WWRY. Does this make me "a repugnant tosser of the ignorant inconsiderate coarse-voiced type?" I do however know how to behave. I do have saggy bingo wing arms though - sorry!

Also at Phantom25, Drama School/Stage School kids. Ugh they drive me insane, and not just at this show - i have had it at numerous. They are so over excited and noisy, anything to get attention, talk at the speed of light, start singing randomly assuming that we want to here their average voice and bang on about a friend of a friend of a friend knows some minor guy in the ensemble.

I once spent an awful journey home on a last train from London with a load of stage school kids sat behind me. They had evidently been to see Wicked; I got a blow by blow account so no need to see it now. Probably wont be able too due to the fact in great Van Gogh tradition I lopped not just one but both ears off. Most inconvenient as I wear glasses!!

I agree with this, it's an irritant! There was a group from one of the big colleges behind me at The Last 5 Years once and I got "oooh I love this one" "ooh this one's good" at the start of every number, along with occasional singing along. I'd rather have expected them to know how to behave!
