I really hope for your sake Carrie, that you are not using your real name.......comments like that on public boards have had people sacked in the past!
I love these message boards *but* people who post here should remember that this is for public viewing.......you are not just sitting in a pub/theatre bar and chatting to your West End mates, the sort of place where we traditionally share gossip!
I once got a reprimand for gossiping at a bus stop with some other WE peeps that I shared a journey home with, a member of the audience of the show I was on wrote a letter to the Theatre about what she had heard..............................
I've heard similar stories: someone in a show says something to a friend, who repeats it to another friend, who happens to know the show's producer, and suddenly an innocent comment ends up costing someone their job, or at the very least has them standing in front of their employers trying to come up with reasons why they shouldn't be sacked.
When I'm told something by someone in a show I treat it as confidential unless I'm told otherwise, or unless I know that it's already public knowledge. Also, as I post under my real name, I never say anything I wouldn't want to be read by someone I know.

All of these are possible. Why should she stop and sign autographs? It's not in her contract. Do you spend half an hour at the end of your working day making inane conversation to random strangers?
The rule I follow at the stage door is that I don't speak to anyone leaving the theatre unless I'm sure they recognise me, just as I wouldn't if it were any other place of work.
I have always hated eggs. I remember back when I was a sperm I tried to head-butt one. It did not end well.
