You know, I think these bans are awful even though I don’t smoke, BUT IMHO if you pass a law like this then it is for everyone not just the folks in resturants and bars! I say “NO” to allowing artistic freedom here because I’m sure 99% of them were all for it when it was someone else who had to comply!

I went to a play in San Francisco a couple of years ago where the actors just held unlit cigarettes and pretended to smoke them.

I wonder if they would be allowed to sing “Smoke Gets in
Your Eyes” or”These Foolish Things” on the stage in Chicago?

Even references to smoking are a no-no,but sex,violence,and getting drunk on stage are okay.

The world has gone stark,raving,mad !

I saw the musical here in Las Vegas. I genuinely enjoyed it. There was only one thing that bothered me, and it wasn't the Jersey boys lighting up a cigarette. It was the very frequent use of the “F” word. Obviously to the person objecting, smoking a cigarette is a greater sin than having a vulgar mouth.

Not anymore, in America.

Apart from parts of the American South, it’s an absolute no-no almost anywhere.

Kenya(!), of all places just passed a smoking ban, but exempted bars etc. So they preserved some sanity.

Following an apparent complaint from an irate theatergoer

Tyranny of the idiotic minority.

As near as I can tell - actors, in any gender configuration, may copulate on stage - but not smoke a cigarette afterwards.

That makes sense /s

The Soviet style airbrushing of history continues.
