Famed Broadway actress Patti LuPone scolded an audience member for not properly wearing a mask during a post-show question-and-answer session.
LuPone, answering questions with the rest of the cast after a performance of her musical Company, was filmed scolding a theatergoer who didn’t cover her nose with her mask.
“Put your mask over your nose. That’s why you’re in the theater. That’s the rule. If you don’t want to follow the rule, go away!” LuPone yelled at that person.
The audience cheered and applauded as she ranted and raged at the masked man.
“I’m serious! Who do you think you are that you don’t respect the people around you?” LuPone demanded.
The ticket buyer from the audience shot back: “I’ll pay your salary!”
“Are you paying my salary? Bulls**t. Chris Harper pays my salary,” LuPone retorted, naming the show’s producer.
“Who do you Think You Are?!” LuPone shrieked.
“I’m a patron. A person!” said the viewer.
“Just put your mask over your nose!” LuPone commanded before the discussion moderator changed the subject.
Speaking of the incident, you said Playbill“We’re working hard on stage to create a world completely wrecked by a few rude, self-centered and inconsiderate viewers controlled by their phones.”
“Lindsey Graham, you are a disgrace. Personally, why don’t you just bite the bullet and get out. Maybe you’re just coming to your senses,” she tweeted.
In another controversial tweet, she mocked Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, calling him a “national disgrace” and approvingly referencing how Paul’s neighbor viciously assaulted him in November 2017, breaking multiple bones and taking him to the hospital.
“Rand Paul, do us all a big favor. Don’t set foot in NYC. You are also a national disgrace. Maybe your neighbor was right?” she tweeted.
