Frequent theatre goers will confirm: there’s nothing more annoying than being distracted from the show by a fellow inconsiderate audience member. Benedict Nightingale, writer for the Times Online, takes on these coughers and candy-unwrappers in his new article, The 15 Golden Rules of Theatre Etiquette. His little list includes the expected – turning off cell phones and managing rowdy children – but also the suggestions to avoid hats and high hair styles, whispering to neighbors, and waking up sleeping critics (as his review will be kinder out of guilt).
