Also more enjoyable as an audience member.

Seeing a show on Broadway has become a chore. I went to see “The Notebook” and “Sweeney Todd” in the past two weeks. Both shows lined up the entire audience down the street and around the next block. They didn’t open their doors to let people in until 10 minutes before showtime. I barely made it to my seat for both performances, and I needed the restroom but couldn’t go because there was no time.

Also, the front of house staff are RUDE. I’m happy to go through a metal detector and have my backpack searched. But why do I need to be yelled at while it’s happening?

I also saw “Titanique” and “Dead Outlaw” recently. It was smooth sailing both times. And the shows were better. :)
