I've gone to a variety of cultural events and venues over the past 10 years or so. I have to say that the Walnut St. has the worst patrons in terms of behavior. They run for the exits; they're loud and boorish. It's turned me off to ever going back there again.
And what is it with supposedly grown adults behaving worse than their teenaged children? At the opera on opening night, I saw people who clearly did not know how to behave during the singing of the National Anthem. No sooner did the curtains go up for intermissions when people pulled out their "smart" phones and start posting to Facebook. Is it so difficult to have a conversation with whom you've chosen to attend?
