i think it’s funny how christianity made a big deal about mary being impregnanted by god and everyone was like “oh my god the son of god! we must worship him listen to his great wisdom.” 

meanwhile, if you said god knocked you up in ancient greece they’d just be like “yeah, me too.”

Okay, I laughed.

Theatre makers, this is it. We have failed at our job. We have failed our audiences. We can no longer enchant or entertain. This is a sad day. RIP theatre.

This makes me so angry on so many levels

My own personal take on this (after sitting in two pit orchestras and seeing two shows in New York this summer):

Yeah, you’re there to see the show obviously. So during the show, phones off. But house opens a half hour prior to curtain, you’re standing outside for longer, there’s a 15+ minute intermission. Of course, we could just say “just turn your phones off for three hours, you can do it.” But that actor in the Playbill looks familiar and his bio isn’t too descriptive. Oh, but I recognize this lady, and she has a website. Wait, is that the cello player from The Producers? And the set looks nice, I wonder what other shows its designer worked on? Hmm, “based on the book by John Smith…” What was that book about? And he totally wrote this other book I love!

And I could keep going on.

Theater Wi-Fi might not be the 100% best idea, but if it’s not abused during the show (as in let’s play bubble shooter mid-show), I don’t see a problem.

I saw If/Then this summer. I knew nothing about the show, but we just got a really good discount and hey, who doesn’t like some good ol’ Idina Menzel and Anthony Rapp (even if it was his understudy that day)? Tom Kitt…wait, what else did he do? OH MY GOD I LOVED NEXT TO NORMAL! And orchestrated American Idiot? I’M DOING THAT IN THE FALL! And who’s the cello player this afternoon? I have to know…Oh cool! She was a replacement cellist for Next to Normal! And what about this actor. OH MY GOD YOU’RE CHIP TOLENTINO.

Thus enhancing my entire experience that afternoon. Theatergoers aren’t stupid. They know how much these tickets cost. If they don’t like the show, they’ll spare themselves and leave. If they’re interested, phones go away. If not, they go away.

TL;DR
I don’t get the big deal. It definitely doesn’t hurt theater, in my opinion.

1011. A muggleborn with Celiac Disease comes to Hogwarts and learns from Madam Pomfrey that there are potions to cure C.D. and other food intolerance/allergies. She takes it and gorges herself on breads and pastas for the first time at dinner that night, but ends up eating so much food she barfs. But it was totally worth it.
