Episode 25: How to Humiliate the Actors

Heard about this earlier this week...

This new story comes from someone who was actually in the audience for this latest insanity from Crazy Ol' Horror Show...

Family Musical Theatre, the community theatre that is still trapped at the Ivory (in fact, the only company still working there regularly), was producing A Chorus Line. Near the end of one performance (that we know of), Horror Show placed herself down in front of the stage, over to one side, where she was completely visible to the audience, from which she watched the show's finale. That's bad enough...

Then the minute the finale is over, Horror Show pivots and turns to the audience, still down in front of the stage -- this is her show now! And throughout the entire curtain call, she's clapping loudly, like Tinkerbell is gonna die if she stops, but even worse, she is gesturing for the audience to get up and give the show a standing ovation. She's screaming at the top of her lungs, "Stand up! Stand up! Aren't they great?" And she actually forces the audience to give the show a standing O. No shit.

I hear the FMT people were outraged and made it clear to her that she is never to do that again. Except we all know she will... It makes me think she's never been in a damn theatre before this!

She really needs to see a professional. Or at least be one.
