A man seeing Harvey Fierstein’s show on Bella Abzug, Bella Bella, for some reason decided to relieve himself in the lobby.
Arts writer Cameron Pegg tweeted that Fierstein,
“is rarely upstaged, but he was briefly at his new show this evening — by an elderly man who dashed out of his seat, only to urinate in the foyer… within earshot. The most surprising thing is that he returned to his seat.
Only on Broadway!”
“Actually it was Off Broadway. At Broadway prices, he probably would have done it right in his seat. Live theater folks. If you can see and hear us, we can see and hear you!”
Fierstein’s show is now playing at City Center Stage.
This will likely go down in NYC theater history along with the incident where a woman seemingly pleasured herself watching Tom Hiddleston in Betrayal on Broadway —
The New York Post reported last month that a woman at Hiddletson’s play seemed to REALLY get off, literally, while watching the actor, and a witness joked,
“The show was really wonderful… But you might want to avoid seat B-3.”
