A friend of mine had a role in a musical where she had to come between the leading man and his osonice girlfriend.
She was boo'd every night and eventually found the whole thing very demoralising and moved on.
I suspect that any performer, having given a good performance, would be concerned if they got the boos, because many people would not appreciate the fact that it is the character getting the bird not the actor.
Really? What show was it? I have *never* heard booing outside a panto though I know it happens for some shows in the cartoonish way given above, it always seems to be for men who play up to it. Never heard of it directed towards a woman who just happened to be playing a slightly unsympathetic character before. And she really left a job because of it?
