A lot of recent Broadway plays seem to be worth that kind of reaction.

Probably the best commentary on Broadway in recent years.

Who among us has not projectile vomited at nearly every appearance, play, screenplay or teleplay by Paul Rudd?

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

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.

I remember reading a story from the late 1800’s in England. A man went to an opera and say in the front row of the balcony. Well, it was a LONG opera, and the etiquette of the day said that you didn't get up until either an intermission or the end. Well, just after this guy sits down, he realizes he's gotta make #1...but it's too late.

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
