Arty Facts with Master J is a show about working in the arts. Today: in the second part of a miniseries on the apparent recent increase in bad audience behaviour, Master J is joined by musical theatre actor Karen Holmes, who has just started a national tour of Greatest Days – The Official Take That Musical. In this episode, Master J puts the case for this not being a new phenomenon. Topics include: the accepted behaviour of audiences in the 1800s, how the actor Kemble destroyed a play's chance on its opening night on purpose, Patti LuPone’s multiple incidences of responding to bad audience etiquette, an actor who deliberately sneezed on noisy patrons, how Hamilton writer banned Madonna for being on her phone the whole show, and how an entire tour got cancelled after a cast member jumped off stage to punch someone in the audience. Which for Master J, just sounds like a normal Friday night gig. For more information visit Master J on Facebook. [Repeats Thursday 3.30am.]
