On March 2 my daughter and I attended the matinee performance of Les Miserables at the Adrienne Arsht Center. The show began promptly at 2 p.m. However, the seating wasn’t completed until almost 30 minutes into the show.
For the first half hour we watched flashlights and blue laser pointers from all areas of the theater. Not to mention constant talking and hustling and bustling as people were trying to get seated.
There should be a policy of not permitting late seating. It has to be a distraction to the performers and it is highly irritating to those of us that have spent our money and our time to see a live show.
We will never change the behavior of those who are late or rude, but a center such as this can put rules into place that prohibits such chaos.
