LETTER: Mind your theatre-going manners

Reader Heather Dean says don't video performances without the performer's permission.

Last weekend I was one of the fortunate in attendance at Ananta’s beautiful concert, On Third Thought at the Capitol Theatre.  It was an incredible evening of song, of camaraderie, of talent and emotion.

A perfect concert except for the person two rows ahead of me with his camera held up at eye level, filming not all but several of the numbers. Granted, we weren’t reminded to turn off our phones and recording devices at the beginning of the evening, but really, should we have to be reminded of this time and time again?

We are fortunate to have many very talented artists in our city. We should respect their artistic copyright and not skulk in the shadows like the misguided recorder in Diva. Mind your manners, please.
