The Phantom of the Opera (1986 musical)Image via Wikipedia

Last night we took our fifteen year old daughter to see The Phantom of the Opera. Overall, it was a very enjoyable affair, and she really loved it. However, even though we had really good seats, our pleasure was diminished by a couple of factors. After the show began and even after intermission, several patrons were allowed to go to their seats all the while blocking others' views. There was a family seated behind us who had a child who constantly interrupted the program by asking questions about what was happening on stage. I don't totally blame him, however, because he should have been told beforehand what was and was not allowed at the theater. At the very least, they could have told him the basic plot or shown him the movie so that he would know what was going on. And does anyone else feel as I do that food and drink do not belong at a live performance? People were dressed in a variety of manners, and the whole affair seemed to be only a step above going to the movies.
