Call me overly sensitive, but I’m a little touchy when it comes to audience manners, or lack thereof. Recently distracting patrons (how can I complain about overly enthusiastic kids? but leave making-out for the cinema) got me thinking about how much the audience and front-of-house experience affects an evening’s success.
So, at the risk of using another 50 words … Who do you think has the best audiences? The most comfortable seats? The most temperate a/c? Cleanest restrooms? Most interesting ambience? Convenient parking or transportation access? Best concessions? Strongest coffee? Knowledgable box office staff? Friendly ushers? Coolest gear? Smartest playbill?
