It's the latest incident of audience misbehavior causing a reaction from the stage. In July an audience member at Hand to God climbed onto the stage in an attempt to charge his phone in a prop outlet on the set. That same week actress Patti LuPone confiscated a cell phone from an audience member using it during a performance of Shows for Days at Lincoln Center.
