Well... after the "fiyero screech" those cheers from the audience made me cringe - can people really not control themselves to that level, there's a theatre full of people around them, they're not 'down the local'
I expect crazyness at cast change but don't get me wrong, I'm happy to do a whoop after a particularly good song as part of the applause.
The funny thing is people cheering because a performer tries to do something with the score - regardless of it failing to come off!
Yeah, I could forgive a whoop for something excellent and new, but none of it was.
Also still breaking their own ticket sale records doesn't sound like a show in trouble to me, doesn't appear like they have problem shifting tickets!
Yes - this is definitely a show which is not in trouble of any form. However, I suspect all of their new record breaking weeks are due only to price inflation, so this is really only a gauge that the show is not *losing* popularity, rather than gaining it.
