#283246 From Here To Eternity, Shaftesbury Theatre

Posted mjr on 08 November 2013 - 01:39 AM

I tend not to get involved in conversations like this, but despite personal feeling towards shows, I feel it rather sad to wish them to close. If people started chatting online about your place of work closing because things were not going so well it would not feel great. The cast may not be your favourite, but there is a bloody good orchestra and crew working on this show, and I fear the worst or them! Think about those that are often forgotten in this sort of situation. I think its time some people grew up on this board. Its fine not to like a show, but try and be adult about it.

Glad I was able to help a bit.

Totally agree about that "single seat" thing. The most annoying I think is Trafalgar Studio two. The entire centre block row A can be available, but it won't let you book a single seat on it, as there is an even number of tickets there.

I wonder too how many sales are lost that way... and if one day somebody will try using the "Disability Discrimination Act" or similar to force a change to the policy.

As I also observed on my blog once, if they are that set on insulting single theatregoers, why don't they go the whole hog and simply flash up an advert for "Dateline" when they try to buy a single? Just complete the stereotype.

Oh gosh I feel inferior to some others on here for liking this show :ph34r: I should hide now.  I don't drink, don't whoop but have been known to participate by clapping and occasionally standing up towards the end of a show :o . I actually find people talking, rustling, eating, drinking, fidgeting, kicking seats, singing along etc far more annoying. I've had many a theatre evening ruined by drunken chatterers and other than the parts where the audience stand up towards the end of The Commitments I've not experienced a problem at this show so far.

Thats ridiculous.  By that logic every understudy who tweets when they are on you should like their performance.  

I follow him, he never comes across as arrogant, in fact he, Killian and a few others are some of the best and most amusing West End tweeters out there.  He posts dates so fans know when he is on (which is what you would expect and kinda the whole point of Twitter) and a few jokey backstage pics.  He has never said 'im amazing'.

Plus when you read his twitter feed there is very few mentions of him as enjolras

If you dont like his performance that is fine.  But to say just because he said on twitter that he was on that day therefore he should be brilliant is insane.  

I could tweet now that Im about to do something, doesnt mean I am automatically going to be good at it, or be liked by everyone.

David Hunter has been tweeting and instagraming a lot about his forthcoming Once dates, so I guess he better be to your liking too then!

People take social networking way too seriously.
