Credit where it's due: I am so relieved that the contract is up on the cheesy Porgy & Bess ad. No more dashing away from the noisy front page before that wretched am-dram sound kicks in again. Peace at last.

I have to agree.  The advert was fine when it first appeared but it's been getting on my nerves for the past few weeks playing every time I open up Whatsonstage.com.

Please, no more!!!

I won't be called a baggage!

Hear hear.  All that practise in hitting the mute key must have improved my reaction skills.

Ditto... never quite managed to hit the mute in time before hearing a few bars of it... great show just not what I wanted each time I log on to the site.

Noisy ads are really annoying though (especially when you're at work!)

The music always made me think I was an Happy Clappy Church website

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

It was an intrusive act by an advertiser, the inflicting of a raucous racket. The trick was to get off the Whatonstage.com home-page as quickly as possible, so quick in my case that I didn't discover until the very end what it was advertising, never mind it being for 'Porgy and Bess'.
