Audiences' cup-shaking antics rated 'appalling' by leading playwright
BADLY-BEHAVED audiences have provoked London theatres to bring in beefed up security teams.
"In a show like Thriller Live, you get people who have never been to the theatre before and may have been out for a drink before they arrive," said Nica Burns, co-owner of the Lyric.
"I am appalled by the number of people who take drinks into the auditorium," Harwood told BBC Radio 4.
"People shake their cups to get more drink but they don't know the actors can hear them."
