What is Proper Audience Etiquette?

with one comment

A recent article from The Denver Post lets their writer and theater critic, John Moore, vent and lash out on bad behavior by theater audiences.

How long is too long to let your phone vibrate under your seat? At what age are theatergoers mature enough to appreciate the arts? Should food be allowed at your seat? Should you bring your children? Is there a difference seen in theater rules for etiquette in Europe and are they lacking in the United States?

These are just some of the questions Moore puts up for debate in his column. Here at Beet Street we encourage you to read his article and consider for yourself the proper audience etiquette.

  1. Above all, PLEASE don’t let your phone ring during a performance, answer it, and then have a phone conversation! I was at the Lincoln Center a few years back and the person next to me actually did this!
