'Cher Show' Star Calls Out Kanye West for Using Phone During Opening Night Performance

Kanye West attended the opening night performance of the Broadway musical The Cher Show, but he seemingly wasn’t paying attention to the show.

Tony-nominated actor Jarrod Spector, who plays Sonny Bono in the musical, called out Kanye for being on his phone throughout the performance.

“Hey @kanyewest so cool that you’re here at @TheCherShow! If you look up from your cell phone you’ll see we’re doing a show up here. It’s opening night. Kind of a big deal for us. Thanks so much,” Jarrod tweeted.

Opening night is often the biggest night of an actor’s career, especially for the three actors making their Broadway debuts in this musical.

Before the performance, Kanye walked the red carpet with his wife Kim Kardashian, whose fashion icon is Cher. The legend herself was at the performance too.
