New York you've stolen my heart ❀I have had the BEST 3 weeks here!! I'm getting to what what I love see amazing friends and somehow saw 13 shows in the time I've been here! PlUs DEH twice haha 😍 Every show has been filled with absolutely incredible talent and I had an wonderful time at each show, but I was shocked by the horrific theatre etiquette. Cue rant... At almost every show, an audience member had their phone out during the show, and I'm not talking about little things. At Bandstand a girl was texting on the 3rd row of the orchestra, a kid was PLAYING A GAME at Anastasia, more texting at Cats, DEH, Ave Q, Miss Saigon, Waitress, and Charlie. At Sweeney Todd and The Blue Man Group, people actually took pictures during the show! Someone used a flash and one of the Blue Men was not happy πŸ‘€ This is blatant disrespect for proper theatre etiquette and for the performers themselves. How many more funny ways do people have to come up with to ask you to turn off your phone at the beginning of the show? What is SO important that you can't unplug for 2 hours and let yourself experience the story and art that you have PAID for. I am normally not one to complain or let other people ruin things for me, but my experience at each show was lessened because of a  bright screen lighting up in front of me and taking me out of whatever moment I was invested in. I sighed and then refocused, but you can't help but be distracted! I guess people don't care about the rules or being polite anymore. Maybe they just don't know. It's sad that these stories of people trying to charge their phone on stage, or FaceTiming during a show are coming up more and more. At this point, seeing someone on their phone during a BROADWAY show is basically the norm. 11/14 times it happened to me. That's just not ok and I don't think people realize how bad it is getting. Anyway ok my rant is over 😁 Keep theatre special πŸ’• #nyc #broadway #stoptexting #theatreetiquette #turnoffyourphone #livetheatre #respect #bepolite #becourteous #unplug #rant #sorry
