I can see how people would boo in the spirit of things for 'Amen' I've also been to a few musicals where people booed the bad guy/girl as mentioned above.

I have never booed at any musical that I have seen. I think, like many on here, that it's very panto-like behaviour.

Glad they took it in good spirit but then i dont think they were true villains really. He just wanted blessing to drive the truck at the end of the day
I really did enjoy booing the wicked witch of the west in Wizard of Oz. She had the biggest smile on her face at the end as she had the loudest applause from the crowd at the end amidst the booing

The wicked witch in wizard of oz
Javert in Les Mis
Scar in The Lion King
I don't believe it was disrespectful or offended the particular actors, as they are the villian of the piece!
However booing for a performance you didn't like is very disrespectful in my opinion.

The only place I have ever (to my great shock and mortification) witnessed booing has been at La Scala. Every single time, apparently by the same group of people (disheveled looking middle-aged and elderly men), whom I also once saw engaged in a fist fight with another group after the show. Puzzled, I did some online research and asked some Italian friends what it was all about, and it turns out that there is apparently a group who blackmails singers/production teams/La Scala itself (depending on the source) asking for money not to boo the performers and the show.
Food for thought, wanna-be mobsters.
I could never boo anyone or anything, I just passive-aggressively refuse to participate in the applause.
