Helpful hint: If you’re going to see a Broadway play, it’s best to sit far away from the mezzanine. Otherwise, bring a raincoat.
There was real-life drama at Paul Rudd’s Broadway play “Grace” when an audience member who appeared drunk threw up over a mezzanine railing onto theatergoers below.
“There was mass chaos for several minutes, but the cast played right on through, ignoring the disruption.” Spies added of the nauseous fellow, “It was very apparent that alcohol was to blame” for the incident.
The unidentified intoxicated playgoer was immediately “ushered out of the house.” “The house staff expertly handled the situation as quickly and quietly as possible,” said an insider. “They quietly helped the messy patrons to restrooms to clean up and offered paper towels to others who wanted to stay in their seats and watch the show.”
In fairness, Paul Rudd’s work makes a lot of people vomit.
