All the ways you wish you could be, that’s me. I look like you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable, and most importantly, I am free in all the ways that you are not.
that must be so disappointing for the actors especially considering the great reviews it got from the critic showing. i can’t believe people would have the audacity to follow tom out of the theater ugh.
right? it’s so disrespectful to all the hard work that’s gone into it. I know, it’s just so wrong, I can’t quite fathom it. I mean, I work at a theatre, and it has space for 700 standing people so you’d imagine it’d get quite rowdy - nope - people understand and respect the play and the actors and act like civilized human beings, weirdly. And if anyone is rowdy then they get thrown out! I feel the Donmar ought to implement that rule tbh
The fact that they don’t have any theatre etiquette at all is completely repulsive. Like I’m honestly disgusted rn.
THANK YOU! You don’t do that shit at the theatre! It would be like spray painting graffiti up the walls at the National Portrait Gallery, it’s so blatantly rude and disrespectful!
houseoflecter reblogged this from you and added:
it’s repellant, isn’t it? i actually find it hard to understand how these people can call themselves fans. They ruin it - for the audience, for the rest of the cast, for all the people who’ve worked tirelessly to achieve this - and, of-fucking-course, for Tom himself.
this is so embarrassing i feel sorry for him and the people who were there actually trying to watch
right? there’ll be people there who don’t even know who he is, the people who have season tickets to the donmar or just fancied seeing coriolanus or whatever - it makes me so very angry that this handful of morons have taken it upon themselves to destroy the sanctity of the theatre - it’s meant to be a transcendent, magical thing - have we not evolved from the shouting and jeering of freaking bear baiting?
angst angst angst
wow that’s so awful i’m so embarrassed. i really hope that this stupid energy will have died down later in the performances…..
I bloody hope so too… fingers crossed it’ll have quieted down by the time you see it! I mean, don’t they understand they’re literally spoiling it for everyone else present, cast included? Might come as a shock to some of them, I’m sure, but not everyone is there for Tom.
It just makes me so angry, the majority of them won’t even understand the goddamn play and yet they take up the spaces of people who might actually appreciate it.
I’d check the tag for the play. Many folks crowding him for pics/signings when he’s tired and done for the night (even after Security said no), and being immature during the play.
oh god what happened
what’s happening? (◕△◕✿)
oop, i’ve replied here
wait are people really ruining a play just to make themselves noticed?
oh no :(((((((( what’s been happening?
Shit what’s been happening?
People are queuing up from 5pm for standing tickets which are released the next day at 10am. They’re then not leaving at the end of the play - they just get straight back in line.
Because they’ve seen it over and over, they know where to stand, in the standing area, to get in the way of entrances and exits. Apparently there’s one scene wherein Tom only has a robe on, and people are running around the theatre to try and better position themselves to see through the robe. The Donmar doesn’t have a raised stage, it’s on level with the audience, so they’re just abusing that utterly and completely.
They’re talking throughout the show, giggling and whispering and being absolutely, ridiculously childish. Not only is it enormously rude and disrespectful, it’s also vastly inappropriate. It’s a performance of a Shakespeare play, performed by respected actors in a respected theatre - it’s a theatrical event, not a fucking Justin Bieber concert. People dress up for the theatre, you do dinner and drinks - it’s a civil, cultured evening out, and these people are desecrating the sanctity of the theatre and iT MAKES ME SO ANGRY.
I mean, they come out, and all they take away from it is “tom was wearing leather an’ he was hot an’ he was wearing leather an’-” I mean, for the love of god, Coriolanus is a serious play, about war and turmoil and anguish, not a canvas for teenage morons to project their ridiculous ideals on!
They’ve also been flooding the stage door, knocking over security, and following him to the station after the play.
Touché, guys. You really outdid yourselves this time.
