Quote of the Day: Rude Audience Edition

"But rudeness, in my worldview, is not a small crime. When a phone ring rips everyone's attention from the illusion that has been carefully created in a theater, that's a kind of violence. When rapt darkness is shattered by the light of one iPhone, I find myself dreaming of mob rule. It is impossible to imagine how jarring this oblivious multi-tasking must be to performers, who, we should remember, see and hear everything in the house."

-Linda Winer, "Rude Behavior Plagues New York theater," Newsday
