She was onstage fully socially distanced, as well as tested immediately prior to her performance, I'm sure.


@FLgardener she doesn't look socially distanced sitting there with people on either side of her.  Another case of do as I say, not as I do.....

Here we go.

 

Those are the actors and director from the production.   Not audience members. 

 

They all meet the production safety protocols in adherence with Actor Equity requirements.  They are not audience members.  They are obeying every rule.  The masking rule is for the audience. 

 

It's pretty basic and straightforward.

Brava Ms Lupone!! Please let all of those who are soooooo offended stay away. You won't be missed. I have my tickets set for 6/8 after having my tickets cancelled 2 years ago.

@Johnnyeager because they're better than - in a different class than the audience?  Who gives a rats backside about protocols.  Yep, do as I say, rules for thee but not for me.....

The story was on local news tonight.  This was an after show panel discussion with audience members.  PL motioned twice for 2 audience members to cover their mouths and noses with their masks. When they didn't you can see what happened.  The panel supported her.  They interviewed numerous audience members. Everyone shown supported PL.

Take it up with Actors Equity and The Broadway League.

I am noticing little by little I am seeing people wear masks again.  In some places numbers are going up.  It took me a while not to wear one.  I will probably wear one again, sometimes I am not comfortable without one.

This is like the idiots who book a flight knowing they have to wear a mask and then refuse and cause a plane full of passengers to be delayed.  

 

You know or should know what is required of you.  If you don't like it, stay home.


Absolutely, you don't like the rules of a place don't go.  They have rights too.  If you don't want to wear a mask on a plane don't buy a ticket and if you have to go follow the rules.  Have respect for others.

went to the theater on thursday night.

broadway across america in baltimore.

they no longer require masks , but do require  proof of vaccination.

really enjoyed AINT TOO PROUD.....go see it if you havent.....it was FANTASTIC!

very glad i did not have to wear a mask.

this was the first play that they have done this with in our area.

i would say a little less than half were masked, a little more than half were unmased. cocktains/drinks and snacks were now allowed in the theater.

Interviews with other theater goers indicate that initially Patti very, very, very politely gestured to the non-compliant to pull up their mask.  This is not on film.  Repeatedly the request was made. What was filmed was the culmination of her disappointment and frustration.
