But to get back directly to your comment that you can’t imagine people will be allowed to eat or drink on Broadway anytime this fall… imagine it, since it’s clear they will be. To put it in your glass-half-empty way, “You could claim you were drinking or eating the entire show.” True. And some mag do that. I choose the glass-half-full view, that most people will be on their best behavior and not overly abuse the privilege of being able to eat and drink in modest quantities at their seat.
If that’s a dealbreaker for you, that’s a shame but understandably you should probably wait to come back to the theater. At bare minimum though I’m cautiously optimistic this will cut down on the noise of large families indiscriminately passing crinkly pM&M bags back and forth.
