Lastnight at Wicked i wanted to slap some of the audience LMAO. There were people taking photos, the entire place was dark and suddenly u got big bright flashes. Someone's mobile was ringing, people were texting. But tbf the Ushers were quick to act and made them delete the photos.

I saw someone eating what appeared to be a bowl of cereal with milk during a show at the Littleton

Cereal is almost impossible to swallow without milk.

I'd disagree. I used to eat Frosties dry as a child, as I dislike milk!

I'd love to know how someone managed to get a bowl of cereal and milk into an auditorium without spilling it. Unless they brought the cereal in dry & added milk from a bottle when they'd reached their seat...

I didn't notice the preparation! Can you still get those plastic packs with cereal and milk?

Anyway, there was definitely a bowl and spoon involved

That's a very odd thing to say.
Turn up the signal... wipe out the noise

After the WOS awards, can we include people on stage? Horribly presented.
If I stay awake, it must be good.

Here is something I was taken aback by

Whilst I was sitting in my seat for A Chorus Line a woman and her friend came up, saying that that she was sorry but they were directed to the wrong end of the row and would like to get past to get to their seats. I began to get up, giving what I thought was a sympathetic look, to which I guess she took offence (I was busy getting up at that point). Her tone of voice changed to confrontational as she said that she "was sorry", before deciding that she and her friend will go back the way they came to get to the other side.

I don't know whether it was my attitude or something else that caused that. On the other hand I was getting up to help her get to her seat.

Met an absolute charmer yesterday at the performance of Priscilla in Manchester - middle aged woman who clearly hadn't been out in years dancing and singing along to all songs with arms flailing everywhere, oblivious to the fact she was invading the personal space of those around her. Cackling like a drain at all the wrong moments, she found the extremely homophobic graffiti on the bus hysterical, and responding to anyone who dared to ask her to sit down or keep her arms to herself with a mouthful of expletives. I realise the show isn't exactly highbrow entertainment but neither is it a nightclub!

How downright rude of her. I think FOH should have stepped in. As you say it isn't a highbrow show but there is a certain expectation as an audience member, one of which is to allow others to enjoy the show without having their view or personal space invaded. Hell I'm hoping to see this in Southampton, hope the audience is better

The person whose phone rang during Paul's monologue at A Chorus Line tonight... Would anyone object if I hunted them down and punched them in the nose?
