A mystery pooper has turned Broadway into the Great Wipe Way, laying waste to audition rooms by using them as a personal potty and revolting thespians.
The stealthy stink bomber struck during tryouts for the Magic Mike musical at Pearl Studios at 500 Eighth Ave. on Feb. 26, and again on March 6 at the Ripley-Grier space down the block.
There was a lot of disbelief, said actress Eunice Bae of the first incident, when she saw a show rep slip on something on the floor.
She stopped and said, Oh, I just stepped in st. We all laughed thinking she was using the slang version of st to mean general mess, but then we all began to smell it.
Fellow auditioner Alle-Faye Monka said, The first theory was that someone carried it off the street on their shoes. But there is no way that was plausible given that it looked like, well, a fresh pile.
Theater insiders have plunged in with their own hunches about what might have prompted the dastardly deposits. Some suspect the poo-petrator wanted to dump on the Actors Equity Association.

I’m glad this is not a case for Danny Clover or Sgt. Tartaglia.
Sounds like a repeat of the Yale University (Yes, Yale!) “Phantom Sh!tter” of the mid ‘60s that was forced to lay one in Times Square during rush hour.
Details upon request.
Inspired by the Mad Crapper of National Lampoon’s High School Yearbook?
Just trying to keep up with San Fran.
He commuted. He discovered that there was no place left in San Francisco for his contribution.
An article referencing thespians and I was not pinged? I will upper decker all your bathrooms if ever invited over for tea. ;-)
How can anyone possibly tell whether or not it isn’t just a canned performance of what Hollywood puts out now?
Are they sure this isn’t some sort of impromptu art exhibition?
Haha. Oops my bad.
A friend told me there really was a Mad Crapper at the New Jersey high school where he was vice-principal in charge of discipline.
The kid was eventually caught after leaving little souvenirs in many locations around campus.
I can’t remember exactly how the kid was punished, but he definitely received a psychiatric evaluation.
But that’s not the end of the story. My friend said that the kid eventually became a New Jersey state trooper.
Now this could mean one of two things. Either the kid got his head straightened out, or the state police got really sloppy in the way it background checks recruits.
I should note my friend retired to Florida as soon as he qualified for his pension. He has told me often that this is one decision he has never regretted.
I blame it on THE OPERA GHOST! Phantom of the Opera.
Guess they’ll have to send DNA samples to Ancestry.com and the other sites to track down the culprit...NY should spare no expense or they will turn into SF with needles and sh!t all over the place....but wait, they already do ... deBlasio, Cuomo, Ocasional-Cortex, Shummer, etc.
At a dress rehearsal of Verdi’s opera “Aida” that was going poorly. one of the trained horses broke training. Sir Thomas Beecham, who was conducting, stopped the rehearsal, pointed to the offending pile and said, “Disgusting spectacle, but — gad! — what a critic!”
Performance art. Stick a cross in it and get a grant from the NEA.
