New Code Of Conduct At The Theatre: 8 Rules

Last Friday, the theatre critic Mark Shenton was distracted from a five-hour performance of Philip Glass‘s opera “Einstein on the Beach” in Britain by a woman in his row taking photographs with a flash. It turned out to be Bianca Jagger. She had been snapping in defiance, Shenton claims, of complaints from those around her. Jagger has since said that others were taking pictures, too, adding that Shenton insulted and assaulted her. Well, excuse the hell out of me, Bianca! Your snapping during a performance (at least wait for the curtain call!) is also a kind of assault — to the audience. The Guardian took note of Bianca’s childish attitude and posted a New Code of Conduct for Theatregoing.
