So, I have no problem giving a good boo if the production is sub standard or over hyped or a bit celeb driven BS
Obviously I'm mega British polite so don't often do it but sometimes I just can't not-Peter and Alice last night deserved one.......

So

Have u booed??? Do tell!

Just remember I booed at Carousel at the barbican last year, but that was more to do with the domestic violence story than the production

No never. Although many times I have felt like it. I either leave at the interval (if I think it is really bad) or simply don't applaud at the end - even if others around me are. I would not constitute booing bad behaviour though - if a lot of the audience did it and I felt it was merited I would join in.

The only time I've seen booing in a theatre is the panto-like booing of the villain at curtain call.  I've personally only ever seen one show that I would even consider booing at, and even that had a few good moments in it.

Never, as well.  You booed Carousel because Billy hits Julie?  That's extreme.
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

Never. Personally I find booing very panto-like behaviour.

Out of all the reactions one could have to a show, I don't find this one to be anywhere near necessary.

When I saw Les Mis a good few years back, people booed Javert at the curtain call. But that's so panto.

I'd never boo. If I dislike something, I just won't really applaud or in extreme cases, leave in the interval. Booing is just disruptive and rather rude. Next thing you'll tell us is that you throw rotten fruit too.
