The play was fine, it was the audience and the theatre personnel that made this one of the weirdest theatre experiences ever. Mind you, we got stuck in traffic and were late and the ushers appropriately waited till s goof point in the play to seat us. In the middle of the performance, two members of the audience sitting in the front row got up to leave, but not before one of them walked on stage. At first I think we all thought it was part of the performance, but apparently not. Then there was all this noise and commotion on just the other side of the wall from where we sat. Someone was in whatever adjacent room talking in full voice to each other and, like, moving furniture or something. In full voice. If they were theatre employees, wouldn't that be a little weird not to respect that there was a performance going on and to keep it down? I mean, we had just been delayed in entering to minimize disrupting the play, and then that's how the theatre personnel behaved? Let me just give a shoutout and well-done to the actresses, who kept calm and carried on despite all this. I guess their mothers raised them well.
