I missed what the author saw as psychological motivation for the standing ovation. It's mostly about her reaction against the peer pressure of the ritual.

It strikes me after reading all these posts in yet another discussion here that the obligatory standing ovation coincided with the renovation of Times Square. There's an element of civic and industry boosterism embedded in it.

There used to be audible booing in theaters. I don't even think that's done anymore in Italian opera houses where I heard it many years ago. But it's interesting how one-sidedly rah rah the live audience response of Broadway is... that's not the case for sports arenas (or ATC) where supporters and detractors are equally audible.
