Bad Behaviour At A Show
Posted 21 March 2012 - 07:26 AM
I came home and watched a DVD, which was much more enjoyable, and shall think twice about paying a lot of money to see a production in an old theatre (however lovely) again.

An entirely quiet audience!! At Wicked!! Who could have guessd it?
OK, the woman next to me kept eating sweets and drank copious amount of red wine, but she was the only one aound me (Front Stalls). No one moved, no one spoke, no one used mobile. Incredible. I must have been very lucky.
The good audience was such an enormous help as I found the show quite heavy going despite the excellent cast with Gina Beck illuminating in the comic scenes.But I still won't visit the Wicked thread. I'm afraid od what I might find there.

Sorry for going off-topic slightly, and no offence meant, but I think that's quite a rude and frankly quite offensive assumption to make about those who post in that thread. I think you'll find far more vitriol elsewhere.

I don't see how you could think posting your opinion in the Wicked thread could be offensive, that's the nature of a forum, take the good and the bad. What I found offensive was the insinuation that the people who post in the Wicked forum were in some way nasty, intolerant or had done something to make you 'afraid' of what you might find there. Maybe you just didn't realise that that was an implication from what you posted, and I accept that you didn't intend it, but that's what I read from that post.
Certainly saying you're afraid of what you'd find in a thread has nothing to do with a quiet audience, so I hope you can see why I wondered what on earth you meant by that bit of your post and thought it had a derogatory implication
And craftymiss, I'm not sure what the relevance of the other websites you refer to is, I simply made a logical implication from the wording I read on a post here, that's all. Whether it was referring to exuberant fans alone is irrelevant, as it was a generalisation that could be equally applicable to anyone who posts in that thread, the reasonable people included, which is why I found it unsavoury.

But I do admit to imagining that there are many many people who post on Wicked's thread (never opened it myself), considering how often it is updated, comapred to other long-running shows'. I have also read, most likely in this forum, that there are many loyal fans of Wicked performers, and through my experience in other threads, posting negative comments can attract vicious attacks. So I thought I'd better not to say that I didn't like the show itself (though I found the cast all excellent).
Is it really that bad??? As I have written several times in the past, I never post a comment merely to offend people.

Most of the Wicked fans on here don't like many of the loyal 'fans' who are obsessed by particular performers or the show,they really do take things to extremes. I've not found the thread in general worse than many others on this forum, and it doesn't get updated anywhere near as frequently these days, though it is still a popular show.
No, it's not, I hoped that I was wrong in the implication I made from your post, and am glad I was, but my problem was really just that such an implication was possible. Glad it wasn't meant that way.
