IF YOU ARE USED TO A POLITE AUDIENCE, AVOID THIS PLAY
I was seated next to a woman who commented outloud after almost every sentence of the play. Finally, at the beginning of he intermission, I asked her politely to refrain from doing so. She responded, "Did you buy my ticket? I can do whatever I want." Then she called me an ---hole. At that point, I went to find an usher, then spoke to the "Theatre Manager," Joseph Traina. He OFFERED and promised to move this woman and her companion to different seats, for which I was grateful. However, at the very last minute, this couple returned to the seats next to me. I went back to see the theater manager, who then said he would move US to different seats (there were no good available seats -- mind you, we had paid premium for our tickets!) The woman said she talks "like this all the time during church" and the play "isn't an opera!" I followed up the next day with Mr. Traina's supervisor, Mary B. @ Shubert, which runs the theater. They do not care & will not remedy the problem.
