Leave cameras, phones out of theater

Thank you to the people who brought the Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo Show to Homer. What fun. But — there is always a but to tarnish a wonderful evening. I am sure that I am not the only person who thinks the policy of no phones or cameras in the theater during the performance should be up held.

The performance started, immediately the Cyclop eyes lit up all through the theater. It is very distracting. Three of these lights were in front of me. The most impolite was the dark haired young woman in front of me who held her  phone/camera up over her head blocking out both performers on the stage. The gentleman next to me saw my plight and spoke to the young woman. She stopped, thank you. The woman next to her continued her light show except kept her cyclop light close to her breast. Thank you.

Come on,  folks. In a few years who will care about these photos you needed to shoot? Let’s be polite. Do post signs — no cameras or phones in the theater during performances.
