A lot of recent Broadway plays seem to be worth that kind of reaction.
I hope it didn’t land on anyone “important”. LOL!

GRAMMAR NAZI ALERT
Everybody’s a critic nowadays!
Did he yell....4!!!
Yeah, sounds like his review pretty much ‘covered it.’
Probably the best commentary on Broadway in recent years.
Other than that, how was the play?
You posted this one specifically so you could hurl it over to Slings, didn’t you? ;)
Critics are everywhere!!
Remind me to always choose the balcony
“I don’t think she likes the special sauce, Rick!”
Okay, honestly whom among us haven’t barfed at a Broadway play?
The original sentence was grammatical as written.
Who among us has not projectile vomited at nearly every appearance, play, screenplay or teleplay by Paul Rudd?
Critics sometimes don’t wait to write their opinion.
I had the lasagna.
Too cool. When I was a kid, we’d dump cans of veggie soup from the balconey at the movie theatre while making puking noise. Dude really did it
Be still, my bowels.
I had a pal who I used to go to the Sat. Matinee with back in the day. When he was feeling particularly devilish, (usually at a scheduled horror flick), he would bring in one or two 12-18 inch long Garter snakes in those old brown school lunch bags, (in those days you could ‘brown bag’ a lunch into the theater near where I lived from home for between features, probably not allowed now, who knows, I haven’t been to a movie in a long time), tripled up with small breathing holes in ‘em. Sitting in an isle seat in the back row he’d let ‘em go just at the movies scariest parts, So a lot of screaming anyway. A few times the damn things wiggled all the way down the sides of the isles, where those little lights lit ‘em up, clear to the front! The non-snake folks went nuts! I will admit I wish I had thought of your soup gag! That is great! The good old days huh?!
One of my favorite movie scenes is when Robert Duvall pretends to vomit in THE GREAT SANTINI. The young guys diving in with spoons is a hoot.
Well, with Rudd it’s “coming from the balcony”. With Bertolt Brecht, it’s “coming from the basement”. You need to take a roll of toilet paper to get through a Brecht play. And yes, Equus made Roy Rogers’s horse Trigger show his appreciation of the play by dropping a load of horse hockey in the lobby.
So,he decides he can take it, and the opera starts. Pretty soon, he's realized he's made a grievous error in judgment...and his eye teeth are floating. He struggles and tries, but finally the pain is too great. In the middle of the performance, he gets up and cries out in a loud voice “Stand clear below, for I must make water! And oh...the pleasure of it!” He then undoes his trousers, whips out his equipment, and proceeds to let fly over the side and onto the floor below. Needless to say, he made quite a splash...and was also ejected from the theater.
I do not have a source for the story, but I remember reading it many years ago and laughing myself silly when I did
Everyone's a critic.
Those in the orchestra pit were NOT amused.
