An audience member walked out of a theatre performance of Jonathan Larson’s Rent because they “didn’t realise this show was about gays.” The incident occurred on 12 March at the Carriagework Theatre in Millenium Square, Leeds.
According to a statement from Bite My Thumb, a community arts group, the “ignorant” person left the matinee showing of the play after a performance of Today 4 U, Tomorrow 4 Me.
It explained: “On exiting the individual turned to a member of the front of house team and declared ‘I DIDN’T REALISE THIS SHOW WAS ABOUT GAYS’. “All the cast, creatives and backstage crew of the production were utterly disgusted to hear about this display of small minded ignorance.
