Okay, fellow Cumberfans, can we have a quick chat about the upcoming Hamlet business? I know I’m not alone in my excitement about the possibility of getting tickets to the production in 2015, and I plan to make a genuine effort to do so - as I know so many of you will as well.
If/when any of us are lucky enough to get in a seat at the Barbican next year, can we all agree to be on our best behavior during the performance? YES, Benedict is attractive. YES, there’s a possibility he will be in tights.OBVIOUSLY, his performance will be brilliant, swoon-worthy, etc.
Does that mean there should be uncontrollable cat-calls from the audience whenever he sets foot on stage?
Should collective cries of “Squeeeee!” erupt whenever he does something particularly adorable? NO.
Is it OK for people in the audience take photos and/or secretly film the performance, thinking they are being sneaky but managing to be totally obvious in the process?
Let’s all be respectful of both Ben and the other performers as well as the rest of the audience. Help them put on the best performance they can and have just as amazing of an experience as you’re having. Don’t be “that guy” in the front row causing a distraction. Please?
I would greatly appreciate it if you guys could please reblog this so as many of Benedict’s fans can see. This might be a serious problem, and it’s not fair to the rest of the guests who want to watch the show, regardless of who the actors are. Thank you.
