Down With Entrance Applause! Clap When An Actor Has Earned It
Kate Taylor: "I don't object to entrance applause on the grounds it isn't proper etiquette. ... I don't object on the grounds it breaks the illusion of theatre. ... Instead, I object to entrance applause because it is a nasty manifestation of a celebrity-obsessed culture that, tautologically, takes an actor's fame as a measure of his achievement rather than judging his current performance."
