Glenn Close Stops Show to Scold Photo-Taking Audience Member

Heads up to anyone going to see Glenn Close in the Broadway musical Sunset Boulevard – put your cameras away!

The 70-year-old actress is currently reprising her role as Norma Desmond in the classic musical and she stopped the show on Wednesday (May 24) when an audience member was snapping photos during the performance.

“I’m sorry. Stop the show. Someone there is taking photos. You must know how distracting and disrespectful that is. Now, we can have a show or we can have a photo shoot,” she told the crowd, according to Page Six.

Glenn then continued the performance from the top of the song “With One Look.”

Taking photos in a Broadway theater is strictly prohibited by New York law. Patti LuPone, who originated the role in Sunset Boulevard, is famous for berating an audience member who took photos at a performance of the musical Gypsy back in 2009.

Patti LuPone Calls Madonna a 'Movie Killer,' Throws Shade at Glenn Close & Movie Musicals

Broadway legend Patti LuPone didn’t hold back at all during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen!

The two-time Tony winner and current nominee for War Paint was asked what she thought of Madonna‘s performance in the movie version of Evita. If you didn’t know, Patti originated the role of Eva Peron on Broadway.

“Well, I was on the treadmill and when MTV used to have videos, I saw, I believe it was ‘Buenos Aires,’ and I thought it was a piece of sh-t. Madonna is a movie killer,” Patti said. “She’s dead behind the eyes. She cannot act her way out of a paper bag. She should not be in film or on stage. She’s a wonderful performer for what she does, but she is not an actress.”
