How about having something like this printed in luminous glow-in-the-dark lettering?

"YOU HAVE RECEIVED THIS CARD BECAUSE YOU ARE TALKING OR OTHERWISE CAUSING A NUISANCE TO YOUR FELLOW THEATRE GOERS. PLEASE RESPECT THE REST OF THE AUDIENCE AND REMAIN SILENT DURING THE PERFORMANCE. THANK YOU."

And leaving it on their battered corpse as a warning to others? I like it.

Surely if they did'nt enjoy the show, they would just resign? Evidently they enjoy it enough to stay :)

Maybe they should use that in their next desperate newspaper ad:

"Book now for Viva Forever!  It must be good because there are people in it"

What a horribly selfish turn this topic has taken. I often attend the theatre with a patent who suffers asthma. Theatres are old dusty buildings and a lot of the stalls sections are actually underground. Even the damp in the air that a person blessed with regular breathing would never notice can cause unintentional coughing fits. Consider the struggles of others before moaning about them.

There has not been one reply that has even been close to being on point. The question is: When ticket prices are as high as in New York

They aren't

To pick a random example - Wicked tickets are £15 to £65 in London, and $57 to $162 on Broadway

You are probably correct that programmes used to be 50p, but if you look at historical values of money, 50p in 1975 (for instance) is equivalent to £4.11 now

What do you have against people from Crete?
