On Thursday night (December 9), just a week after the show opened, Knight tweeted his disappointment after a rowdy audience forced the show to stop.
“Okay. If your intention is to go to the theater, get hysterical, stage, interrupt the show leading to a stoppage? My advice is to stay at your**,” Knight tweeted.
“People pay to go to the theater, not to suffer your folly. Done.”
She confirmed they were ejected by security, tweeting: “They were [removed], with a quickness. It was [the] second time in how many nights. There’s a level of aggression around right now that I don’t like. ”
In the comments, ticket sellers who attended that night claimed that the show was “interrupted” by drunken spectators, who had “joined in singing and drowned the cast”.
One fan wrote: “There was a lot of humiliation during that time. “Perhaps limiting the number of drinks sold and not allowing people to bring in bottles from outside?”
