That's really courageous. I'm almost positive that if I were in the first row and everyone to the right and the left of me were on their feet, directly in front of the cast, I'd give in to the pressure and get up myself, albeit reluctantly. I think that I'd feel that I was conveying a message to the cast that I didn't intend to give. So assuming that you enjoyed the performance but didn't feel it worthy of a standing ovation, how do you overcome both the internal and the external pressure to stand?
